Abstract:

INVESTIGATION OF THE U E OF VARIOUS RAW MATERIALS FOR ELECTRODE PREPARATION CONTINUED. A filler made from coconut shells has shown considerable promise samples had permeabilities greater than 1 darcy. Activated carbons are also being tested. A study of the effect of process variables on the physical properties of carbons has been intensified. Extension of the testing of these effects to fuel cell operation will be made as time permits. a concentrated effort on the improvement of wetproofing behavior of electrode materials is being pursued. Early results have appeared promising. Author
