4). 4 Pt stable Stability of the precursors according to the ligands. 5 Me Pt Me Pt Me Me Me Destabilizing effect of the steric obstruction. Different substituents, mainly 7-norbornadienes, in which a hydrogen on carbon in position 7 (C of the bridge) is substituted by a grouping Me (complex corresponding Pt(81)) were prepared. The presence of these adducts increases the steric volume of the molecule without weighing on the steric interactions of the two groupings CH3 related to platinum, which limit the stability of the precursor (Fig.

8â•… Conclusion and further development As was demonstrated in this section, despite a few gray areas, PEM fuel cell steady-state behavior can be described by 3D CFD simulations. As they become more accurate, such models will help further develop the technology and meet performance and cost targets. Fundamental research is, nonetheless, needed at the microand nanoscopic scales in order to bring a physical description to the membrane behavior or a more explicit link between catalyst loading and electrokinetic parameters.
