The development of dual phase composite catalyst supports from carbon nanotubes and metal oxides can resist performance degradation. Carbon nanotubes provide a conductive framework and titanium oxides can form a strong bond with platinum catalysts. The combination of this composite material has been shown to offer some improvements in the performance durability of this electrocatalyst in the cathode of a polymer electrolyte fuel cell.
