Abstract

Fuel cell is a clean, safe, eco-friendly source of energy as an alternative to already existing energy resources like incineration of fossil fuel. Efficiency of fuel cell is high when platinum is used as an electrode material for both anode and cathode. However, it is very expensive metal. Bimetallic Iron Ferrite (BMIF) has shown better EOR activity considering onset potential, mass activity when compared with noble metal catalyst but it is economical as compared to Pt. XRD reveals the conformation of BMIF and its purity. FTIR before and after electrochemical analysis has confirmed the retainment of its structure.  However, it hasn’t shown good activity for MOR in any parameter i-e Tafel slope value, mass activity and onset potential comparatively.
