Optimization of perfluorosulphonic ionomer amount in gas diffusion electrodes for PEMFC operation under automotive conditions
ABSTRACT Perfluorinated sulphonic acid (PFSA) polymers such as Nafion® are widely used for both electrolyte membrane and ionomer in the catalytic layer because of their high proton conductivity (σH)Expand

Influence of polar groups in thermal and Lewis acid promoted asymmetric diels-alder additions: lactic acid derivatives as practical highly selective and configurationally dichotomic reagents
Abstract Diels-Alder reactions of the acrylate of (S)-ethyl lactate with cyclopentadiene proceed with diastereoface-selectivity of up to 85:15 (non-catalyzed) and 93:7 (TiCl 4 -promoted). DependingExpand

The effect of ball milling and wet blending on the creep behaviour of a particle reinforced 2124 Al-alloy
Abstract The creep behaviour of an AW2124 Al-alloy unreinforced and reinforced with 25 vol.% of SiC particles of different sizes is investigated. The materials were produced via powder metallurgyExpand
