The hottest palladium based metallic glass film ca

  • Detail

Palladium based metallic glass film can improve the performance and efficiency of methanol fuel cells by 85%

as a carrier of (carbon, hydrogen) energy, methanol is intrinsically clean, and its basic physical properties of liquid at room temperature and pressure make the storage, operation, use and conversion of energy forms more safe and convenient. Methanol has been gradually recognized as an ideal new clean renewable fuel by the global industry due to its wide range of sources, huge economic volume and sustainable development of the whole industry chain

the project is divided into two phases

methanol hydrogen production + fuel cell. The application of this technology has great development potential in the automotive industry and technology industry. In order to improve the energy performance of methanol oxidation fuel cells, scientists recommend using electrodes made of palladium based metallic glass films. A team of researchers from the Far East Federal University (Fefu), Austria, Turkey, Switzerland and the UK have developed a new metallic glass for this application. The results were reported in the journal nanoscale

palladium based metallic glass films containing gold and silicon additives (pd79au9si12) are potential materials for the production of energy generation catalysts for methanol fuel cells. In the future, they may replace platinum based elements that are less efficient and more expensive

methanol fuel cell may be suitable for vehicles that must generate force immediately and its reverse speed; Or other special machinery for positive decompression, so special energy supply system is required. In addition, this fuel cell can be used in telecommunications, data centers and residential markets

the metallic glass electrode developed by the team is 85% more efficient than its platinum based analogues in the oxidation of methanol. In addition, due to its amorphous structure, metallic glass is more corrosion-resistant, which poses a considerable threat to the platinum based electrode with crystal structure

"the use of metallic glass as a material for this type of electrode has been previously described in the scientific literature, but earlier papers focused on macroscopic materials. We managed to confirm that nanoscale metallic glass films deposited on commonly used silicon substrates can effectively oxidize methanol. These films remain stable even after many work cycles. Our results greatly broaden the search for new materials in the energy field."

so far, the new palladium based metallic glass is the best material for methanol oxidation in fuel elements, and surpasses all existing developments, which will affect the equipment's failure to reach the rated load and commercial solutions when working. According to the comparison with the most popular materials as methanol oxidation electrodes, this new solution has the best performance value and the highest anti carbon monoxide poisoning ability (usually leading to electrode degradation)

in order to start the new development, the electrode must be scaled up and adjusted to an actual fuel cell

the team hopes to continue to find the best metallic glass composition to improve the stability and performance of fuel cells based on methanol oxidation. At present, the efficiency factor of such batteries ranges from 40% to 60% (while the efficiency factor of gasoline engines is only%

fefu is engaged in the development of new materials with unique properties and characteristics to get involved in the new generation of electronics, green energy, construction and other fields

earlier this year, the team of scientists from Fefu, misis and MSU and their foreign colleagues found a way to saturate the thin layer of metallic glass with hydrogen at room temperature, thus taking another step towards solving one of the biggest problems of carbon nanotubes. With such achievements, researchers have greatly expanded the range of cost-effective, energy-efficient and high productivity materials and methods in the energy field
