Research lines

The research lines developed at LEEA include the development and study of electrode materials used in fuel cells and in electrochemical effluent treatment devices.

The electrocatalytic materials developed at LEEA include DSA type oxide electrodes, platinum based electrodes and their conductive alloys and polymers, among others.

In the area of Environmental Electrochemistry, LEEA has been investigating the degradation of compounds such as dyes and pesticides as well as tannery and insecticide industry effluents.

One of the projects under development at LEEA is the development of fuel bio-cells, which use immobilized enzymes that act as catalysts of biochemical reactions that occur at the anode of a fuel cell.
