Fabrication, testing and modelling of palladium membranes for fuel cell applications

Abstract:

Increasing carbon emissions and insecurities in oil supply have led to heightened interest in hydrogen powered fuel cells. Preferably, the cell runs on hydrogen gas, though due to the sensitivity of the catalytic components in the fuel cell to carbon monoxide, the hydrogen must be extremely pure (typically <50 ppm CO). Due to a lack of hydrogen infrastructure, it is envisaged that a medium term solution will be the reforming of more conventional fuels such as gasoline. The gas mixture ...
