The scope of the work includes:
- Electrode components characterization: permeability; particle size and atomic lattice; surface area determination; morphology; oxidation state of components and stability.
- Electrode composition investigation: optimization on ionomer content and electrode protonic conductivity.
- Interaction between electrode components
- Morphology of electrode surface and MEA cross section.
The above efforts all contribute to a genuine picture of a working PEM fuel cell catalyst layer. These, in turn, enrich the knowledge of Three-Phase-Boundary, provide efficient tool for the electrode selection and eventually will contribute the advancement of PEMFC technology.
