Novel anode catalysts have been developed for sour natural gas solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) applications. Sour natural gas comprises light hydrocarbons, and typically also contains H2S. An alternative fuel SOFC that operates directly on sour natural gas would reduce the overall cost of plant...
High Performance Germanium-based Anode Materials for Lithium-ion and Sodium-ion Rechargeable BatteriesDownload
In this thesis the electrochemical performance of germanium nanowires (GeNWs) as anode for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) and tin-germanium-antimony (Sn-Ge-Sb) thin films as anode for sodium-ion batteries (NIBs) have been investigated. Scientific literature shows a substantial study-to-study...
Studies of Perovskite-based Materials in Solid Oxide Fuel Cells: Anode Performance Optimization and Degradation Mechanism of ElectrolyteDownload
As an alternative energy generation device with higher efficiency compared to conventional devices, the solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) has been widely investigated. However, the application of SOFC is seriously limited due to the difficulty of maintaining an effective balance between excellent...
The Investigation of Lanthanum Strontium Chromite (LSC) Based Perovskite Anodes for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs)Download
Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) can be fueled with diverse raw natural gases which usually contain a carbon source and significant amount of H2S. Both of them severely deactivate the Ni-YSZ cermet anode materials and limit their wide applications. Therefore, the potential anode catalysts developed...
This work is focused on development of tungsten carbide-based materials as alternative anodes for direct utilization of methane in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). Not only were the capabilities of the anodes highlighted, but the challenges were also stressed. First, the impact of porous support...
