Abstract

A long-term experimentation exploring the use of a hydrophobic additive in alkaline media is presented. The fuel cell is operated with a recirculating electrolyte; full polarization curves are taken at regular intervals over the course of hours revealing insight into cell performance over time. Individual electrode performance over time is determined and the extent of degradation is quantified with the use of the external reference electrode. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2011 AIChE Spring Meeting & 7th Global Congress on Process Safety (Chicago, IL 3/13-17/2011).
