Influence of Catalyst Support Composition in PEM Fuel Cell Electrodes Utilizing Plasma Treated Graphene Related Material Decorated with Platinum Nanoparticles

  • This work deals with the preparation and investigation of PEM fuel cell electrodes, which are obtained using graphene related material (GRM) serving as catalyst support for platinum nanoparticles. Applied GRM are used for the preparation of suspensions in four distinct mixing ratios. Two sorts of GRM have been investigated: carbon nanofibers (CNF) and graphene oxide (GO). Utilized CNFs provide a superior graphitization degree of about 100%, which leads to both high corrosion resistance and low ohmic resistance in PEM fuel cells. For electrode preparation a GRM containing layer serving as catalyst support is applied onto a gas diffusion layer (GDL). Prior to GRM suspension and deposition onto a GDL, the graphene structures are functionalized by plasma treatment. Due to this step, an improved hydrophilic behavior for facilitating suspension preparation is achieved. In addition, a subsequent platinum nanoparticle deposition by pulsed electrodeposition process is optimized.
