Hollow Ag-Pd nanoparticles were synthesized for fuel cell catalyst applications.  One major benefit to these hollow nanoparticles is that they are porous, which increases the surface area compared to solid nanoparticles.  Also, there is less material needed to synthesize them since they are hollow.  This is advantageous because one of the major problems with fuel cell catalysts is the cost.  These particular Ag-Pd nanoparticles could be used for ethanol oxidation reactions for fuel cells.  This project studies these Ag-Pd nanoparticles at different compositions of Ag and Pd.
