Electrolysis of water is a
convenient way to store energy as hydrogen. The PEM Electrolysis Cell (PEMEC)
has many advantages; Compactness, operation in a wide power range, and the
possibility of deliver high purity H2.
the use of expensive iridium on the anode side (oxygen electrode), makes large
scale operation of the PEMEC too costly. In order to reduce the cost it is
necessary to either replace or at least lower the use of iridium. In this project novel perovskites based on Cr or Mn will be studied as support materials for the anode in PEMEC's.
The project includes:
-Synthesis of novel perovskite
supports based on Y, Cr, Mn,
Mg, Ni and/or Cu
