ABSTRACT Palladium is emerging as an attractive replacement for platinum in a number of electrochemical applications, including lowtemperature
fuel cells, electrolyzers and sensors. Palladium is more abundant in nature and less expensive than platinum.1 However, cost-associated
issues are not the main driving force behind the increasing interest in palladium as it remains a rare noble metal whose introduction
for a broad technological use would lead to an irreversible increase in its market price.
