Dry and Hot Feul Cells

What is it about?

Ionic liquids based new proton conducting membranes for fuel cell applications above 100 degC.

Why is it important?

The work has the potential to support fuel cells working at temperatures above 100 degC

Perspectives

Professor of Electrochemical Technologies George Zheng Chen
University of Nottingham

Above 100 degC, the conventional proton conducting membrane, Nafion membrane, will not work properly because of lost of water content in the material.
