Proton trade membrane (PEM) gasoline cells, together with H2/O2 (air) and methanol/O2 (air) gas cells, are promising fresh power changing units with excessive potency and occasional to 0 emissions. Such energy resources can be utilized in transportation, desk bound, moveable, and micro energy functions. the foremost elements of those gasoline cells are catalysts and catalyst layers.
PEM gasoline phone Electrocatalysts and Catalyst Layers covers the entire primary facets and functions of this box. the hole chapters introduce the fundamental themes on electrochemical concept and gas phone catalysis, together with: electrode thermodynamics, kinetics, and mass move; electrode/electrolyte interface electrocatalysis; electrocatalytic reactions, together with O2 reduction and H2/CH3OH oxidations; quantum chemistry simulations of catalyst task; catalyst infection; spectroscopic equipment for catalysis learn; porous gasoline electrode thought; and catalyst layers and modeling. Later chapters examine the synthesis, characterization, and task validation of PEM gas cellphone catalysts. All gasoline mobilephone comparable catalysts are reviewed, together with noble and non-noble catalysts and their preparation/performance. extra chapters describe intimately the mixing of the electrocatalyst/catalyst layers into the gas mobile, and their functionality validation, together with: catalyst layer constitution functionality and optimization, catalyst degradation and prognosis, and methods to mitigate the failure modes.
PEM gas telephone Electrocatalysts and Catalyst Layers offers a accomplished, in-depth survey of PEM gasoline phone electrocatalysts and catalyst layers, awarded through across the world popular gasoline phone scientists. Researchers and engineers within the gas telephone will locate this e-book a worthy source, as will scholars of electrochemical engineering and catalyst synthesis.
