Anion-exchange membrane fuel cells (AEMFCs) emerge as a promising clean energy technology. In a recent issue of Nature Energy, Douglin et al. designed ionomerless cathodes using ultra-low-loading Ag–Pd alloy electrocatalysts, which opens new paths for material design/innovation for high-performance AEMFCs by simplifying the transition from laboratory research to commercial applications.
