Nature-inspired skin

A new type of nature-inspired membrane can significantly boost the performance of fuel cells and transform the electric vehicle industry, researchers have found. The membrane, developed by scientists from CSIRO and Hanyang University in Korea, was described in the journal Nature. The research showed that in hot conditions, the membrane, which features a water repellent skin, could improve the efficiency of fuel cells by a factor of four. Young Moo Lee from Hanyang University, who led the research, predicted that this could have major implications for many industries, including the development of electric vehicles.
