Title (EN) FLUID PERMEABLE FLEXIBLE GRAPHITE FUEL CELL ELECTRODE
(FR) ELECTRODE DE PILE A COMBUSTIBLE, A BASE DE GRAPHITE, FLEXIBLE ET PERMEABLE AUX FLUIDES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A membrane electrode assembly is provided. More particularly, an assembly is provided which includes a pair of electrodes (20) and an ion exchange membrane (550) positioned between the electrodes, at least one of the electrodes (10) being formed of a sheet of a compressed mass of expanded graphite particles (80) having a plurality of transverse fluid channels (1400) passing through the sheet between first and second opposed surfaces of the sheet, one of opposed surfaces abutting the ion exchange membrane (550). The surfaces of at least some of the transverse fluid channels (1400) have glassy carbon thereon or therein.
(FR)L'invention concerne un ensemble électrode à membrane, et notamment un ensemble comprenant une paire d'électrodes (20) ainsi qu'une membrane échangeuse d'ions (550) placée entre les électrodes, l'une des électrodes au moins (10) étant formée d'une feuille d'une masse comprimée de particules de graphite expansées (80) comportant plusieurs canaux transversaux à fluide (1400) passant à travers la feuille entre une première et une seconde surface, opposées, de cette feuille, l'une de ces surfaces opposées venant buter contre la membrane échangeuse d'ions (550). Au moins quelques canaux transversaux à fluide (1400) comportent du carbone vitreux dans ou sur leur surface.
