Article Preview

The (ZrO2-1.6P2O5)-PTFE composite electrolytes have been prepared by mixing PTFE powders with different particle sizes and the shell-core-type ZrO2-1.6P2O5 electrolyte, synthesized by solid state reaction with diammonium hydrogen phosphate, to improve the mechanical strength of the electrolyte. The H2 gas permeability decreased and the cell performances improved with decreasing PTFE-particle size. The aging at 0.4 V above 443 K enhanced the ITFC performance owing to the penetration of the electrolyte to the carbon paper. The maximum output power enhanced by 63% after 15 h of aging at 573 K.
