Abstract:

A low temperature, aqueous electrolyte fuel cell employing new, Conducting-Porous-Teflon Electrodes is described. The new electrodes show excellent performance characteristics with a variety of fuels including hydrocarbons and with both oxygen and air as the oxidant. Preparation methods are discussed, and performance data obtained with ambient temperature, hydrogen- oxygen and hydrogen-air cells are presented to illustrate their properties.
