Abstract:

The use of elemental iron on porous nickel substrates as a hydrazine anode was found to give anodic current densities equal to that of palladium catalyst. Anodic current densities of 100 mAsq cm at 0.060 V polarization have been obtained at temperatures of 60C, with fuel concentrations of 3M N2H4 in 5M KOH. The Fe hydrazine anode has operated well over 200 hours at 100 mAsq cm showing stable performance. The initial anode potential vs SCE under load was -1.20 V. This voltage was maintained with little variation through the life testing. Author
