ELECTROCHEMISTRY OF FUEL CELL ELECTRODES

Pagination or Media Count:
Correlation of the catalytic activity of electrode surfaces with electronic properties is being studied. Identification and preparation of electrode polarization is being carried out. A literature survey of representative crystalstructure type compounds has been made with initial synthesis efforts on selected compounds. A sound ingot of NiAs was prepared, but NiTe and FeAs preparations were inhomogenious. A polarization cell was made containing electrodes prepared by wax mounting ingots in glass tubes and face grinding to desired electrode geometry. Preliminary experiments were performed with platinized-Pt, H2, 0.1 N H25O4 half-cells to determine equipment characteristics.
