The present disclosure relates to the methods to synthesize palladium based binary and ternary nanomaterials, as for example CoPd2Se2 and Pd17Se15, and their application as electrocatalyst in the fuel cell. More particularly, the present disclosure relates to the synthesis of highly stable and durable nanomaterials with selenium rich surface. The catalyst outperforms the present state-of-the-art material Pt/C and Pd/C in terms of stability and durability. The present disclosure further relates to the unique, one-pot method to synthesize binary and ternary chalcogenides. The present disclosure also relates to fuel cell device fabrication and applications of said nanomaterial as cathodic electrode material.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
