Scientists encapsulate catalyst in a protective molecular sieve that selectively prevents undesired reactions in methanol fuel cells — ScienceDaily

Because of the many environmental problems caused by the use of fossil fuels, many scientists worldwide are focused on finding efficient alternatives. Though high hopes have been placed on hydrogen fuel cells, the reality is that transporting, storing, and using pure hydrogen comes with a huge added cost, making this process challenging with current technology.
