Title
Reforming methanol to electricity in a high temperature PEM fuel cell
Abstract

In this paper we demonstrate for the first time a compact power unit, where a methanol reforming catalyst is incorporated into the anode of a PEMFC. The proposed internal reforming methanol fuel cell (IRMFC) mainly comprises: (i) a H3PO4-imbibed polymer electrolyte based on aromatic polyethers bearing pyridine units, able to operate at 200 °C and (ii) a 200 °C active and with zero CO emissions Cu–Mn–O methanol reforming catalyst supported on copper foam. Methanol is being reformed inside the anode compartment of the fuel cell at 200 °C producing H2, which is readily oxidized at the anode to produce electricity. The IRMFC showed promising electrochemical behavior and no signs of performance degradation for more than 72 h.
