A fuel cell is primarily an electrochemical system that generates electricity by converting chemical energy into electrical energy. The fuel cell can be thought of as a highly efficient next generation micro power system for a variety of applications. Several challenges to the widespread implementation of fuel cell technology are encountered, although novel inexpensive and long-lasting electrocatalyst materials are becoming major factors in design and development. Recent advances in the application of nanostructured carbon-based materials have suggested the possibility of using carbon nanotubes as novel electrocatalyst supports.
