Abstract:

Hydrogen-air fuel cells with platinum black electrodes and PTFE Matrices gave current densities approaching 100mAsq cm with the monohydrate of TFMSA as the electrolyte. Electrolyte volatility and electrode flooding were shown to be limiting factors for cell performance. Initial performance results for dilute TFMSA electrolyte fuel cells indicated a more promising approach. Author
