Abstract:

The application of IR to the catalytic sudy of the fuel cell electrode is reviewed with emphasis upon chemisorption. Transmission and reflec ion methods are well known techniques in obtaining an IR spectrum the latter is xtremely expensive and i practical. Several techniques were considered for obtaining IR spectrum by transmission. One method involved the impregn ion C b-o-sil with a metal nitrate to form a thin disc whereupon the nitrate was reduced to the metal. The use of an evaporated metal film involved a nickel film of 100 angstroms thickness the ar a of the film is rela ively small and the amount of chemisorption by propane can be negligible. Author
