The Progress in the Ongoing Development Work: Enhancement of GlucoseElectro-Oxidation in Direct-Mode Fuel Cells - An Update
2009 (English)In: The Open Fuel Cells Journal, Vol. 2, 11-14 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This study deals with the R&D regarding the direct glucose fuel cell with a capacity of increasing the power density with glucose as a fuel. The direct-mode fuel cell in which the fuel and the alkaline electrolyte are mixed with each other is tested at room temperature. The direct-mode fuel cell is exposed to an externally generated electromagnetic field with 4 GHz sine signals between electrodes to cause both the splitting of the fuel molecule and the electrochemical oxidation. As a result from the use of the higher frequency signals, a maximum current density of 15 mAcm-2 has been achieved with the total voltage of 0.5 V.
