Abstract

This paper reports on a microfluidic platform that integrates the capabilities of a 3-electrode electrochemical cell in a working fuel cell, and as such constitutes a powerful analytical tool for catalyst and electrode characterization and optimization. In this configuration, the stationary polymeric membrane, typical of conventional fuel cell designs, is replaced by a flowing electrolyte stream which enables detailed in-situ analyses of the fundamental processes that govern the performance and durability of individual electrodes. Here, we demonstrate several examples of studies performed in our laboratory that exploit the distinct capabilities of this microfluidic platform.
