Title: ODORANT FOR FUEL GASES FOR ANION MEMBRANE FUEL CELLS, FUEL GAS AND POWER GENERATION SYSTEM USING ANION MEMBRANE FUEL CELL
Abstract:
[Problem] To provide an odorant for fuel gases for anion membrane fuel cells, which does not generate a harmful sulfur compound after combustion and does not deteriorate the performance of a fuel cell, while enabling leakage detection at low concentrations, and which enables detection of leakage of a gas by a means other than odor, for example, by visual observation. [Solution] An odorant for fuel gases for anion membrane fuel cells, which imparts a fuel gas with an odor, and which is characterized in that the odorant contains at least one or more substances selected from the group consisting of ammonia, trimethylamine, triethylamine, N,N-diethylmethylamine, N,N-dipropylmethylamine, N,N-dipropylethylamine, N,N-diisopropylmethylamine, N,N-diisopropylethylamine, dimethylamine, diethylamine, dipropylamine, ethylmethylamine, propylmethylamine, propylethylamine, methylamine, ethylamine and propylamine.
