Informationen zum Einsatz von 


This metalloporphyrin can be used as a catalyst in fuel cells. Especially by plasma pyrolysis it is activated for use in DMFC. In addition, this compound can be used for the increase in output of batteries. Ion selective electrodes are by this porphyrin for example, Thiocyanate, molybdate and arsenate sensitized.
