In this work it will be conducted activities of research and development of electrocatalysts formed Pt and/or Pd nanoparticles supported on a metal hydride alloys, for ultimate use on alkaline fuel cell anodes. The aim is to develop a product presenting hydrogen storage capacity, in the form of hydride, by exposition to gaseous hydrogen, and whose anodic process being either the molecular hydrogen oxidation and the absorbed hydride oxidation.
