Title: SELF SUSTAINED ELECTROCHEMICAL PROMOTION CATALYSTS
Abstract:
A self sustaining electrochemical promotion catalyst has anodic and cathodic regions across a high surface area ion conductive support. The anodic and cathodic regions are connected by electronically conductive material. The catalyst includes a material that is reversibly oxidized and maintains a steady electrochemical potential between the cathodic and anodic phases resulting in Non-Faradaic electrochemical promotion without an external electric power source.
