Abstract:

Research on the following areas is discussed preliminary tests have been made on fuel cells containing the new ion exchange polymer data is given on more ion exchange polymer reinforcement materials a cost comparison based on experimental data is included for various catalytic electrode systems at a current density of 50 ampssq. ft the first half of the study of chemical hydrogen generation systems is presented including lithium hydride, sodium borohydride, and calcium hydride in water, basic, and acidic media several low pressure atmospheric runs were made with the electrolyzer. The results were unsatisfactory because mixing of the gases occurred.
