  1. 1. Investigations of proton conducting polymers and gas diffusion electrodes in the polymer electrolyte fuel cell

    Author : Peter Gode; Göran Lindbergh; Steven Holdcraft; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Theoretical chemistry; polymer electrolyte fuel cell; proton conducting membrane; porous electrode; gas permeability; degradation; water transport; Teoretisk kemi; Theoretical chemistry; Teoretisk kemi;

    Abstract : Polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFC) convert the chemically bound energy in a fuel, e.g. hydrogen, directly into electricity by an electrochemical process. Examples of future applications are energy conversion such as combined heat and power generation (CHP), zero emission vehicles (ZEV) and consumer electronics. READ MORE

    Abstract : The polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) converts the chemical energy of hydrogen and oxygen (air) into usable electrical energy. At the cathode (the positive electrode), a considerable amount of platinum is generally required to catalyse the sluggish oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). READ MORE
