Abstract [en]

Developments on NANOCOFC (Nanocomposites for advanced fuel cell technology)-a EC-China research network, bring about many new functional materials for advanced fuel cell technologies by introducing nanotechnology into the ceria-composite field. The NANOCOFC has developed this field with more great potentials for continuous research and developments. A typical example is single-component fuel cell reactor or electrolyte-free fuel cell technologies. A radical new fuel cell R&D and new strategy would be explored and developed. Since invented in 1839, all fuel cells (FCs) have been built using three components - the electrolyte, anode and cathode with the electrolyte as the core. Liberation from the constraints of electrolytes has created a revolutionary way to construct a more efficient, ultra low cost and simple FC. The core of our new invention and advanced technology consists of a single layer with mixed ionic and semi- conductivities, providing direct and more efficient conversion from chemical energy to electricity. The FC reactions take place on surfaces of particles all over the component acting as a reactor. This article makes a short review on materials and technology for this radical new fuel cell R&D.
