20150180043 METHOD OF MANUFACTURING FUEL CELL ANODE||US||25.06.2015|
||14639683||Hyundai Motor Company||Hoonhui Lee|
Disclosed is a method of manufacturing an anode for a fuel cell. The method includes: synthesizing a fuel cell catalyst used to oxidize a fuel for the anode in an electrochemical manner; forming an electrode for the anode by use of the synthesized fuel cell catalyst; and synthesizing an electrolysis catalyst, which is used to electrolyze water, on the electrode as the electrolysis catalyst is loaded into the anode. By introducing the electrolysis catalyst on the fuel cell electrode that has already been formed, deformation of the structure of the electrode is minimized and performance of the electrode is improved.

The stacked structure includes at least one interconnector, at least one frame, and at least one complex functional part. The interconnector includes a central area electrically connected to the fuel cell, and edge area outwardly extending with respect to end portions of the fuel cell. The frame supports a side portion of the fuel cell to reinforce strength of the fuel cell supported by the interconnector. The complex functional part is disposed between the interconnector and the frame to constantly maintain an interval therebetween.
20150180074 MANIFOLD FOR REDOX FLOW BATTERY FOR REDUCING SHUNT CURRENT AND REDOX FLOW BATTERY COMPRISING SAME||US||25.06.2015|
||14417895||KOREA INSTITUTE OF ENERGY RESEARCH||Chang-Soo Jin|
A manifold for a redox flow battery capable of effectively suppressing a shunt current has a supply flow pathway and an exhaust flow pathway respectively formed at a left side and a right side of an anode or cathode electrode electrolyte reaction unit so as to include a U-shaped curved portion, and the U-shaped curved portion is formed to be positioned on the upper part of the top or the lower part of the bottom of the first electrode electrolyte reaction unit. When the manifold is applied to a redox flow battery, the supply flow pathway and the exhaust flow pathway having the U-shaped curved portion are formed on the upper part of the top or the lower part of the bottom of the electrode electrolyte reaction unit to prevent an electrolyte existing in the inside of a stack and a pipe from passing through the U-shaped curved portion.
