Durability of polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM)-type fuel cells is the most challenging problem preventing commercialization. There are several sources corroding the membrane and the catalyst layer or oxidizing the bipolar plate of fuel cells. There are several reasons for performance drop in PEM-type fuel cells, and degradation of the bipolar plates is one of the most important one. Graphite-based bipolar plates are usually resistant to corrosion, but because of their slow and costly… CONTINUE READING
