Investigation of catalytic layers on anode for solid oxide fuel cells operating with synthetic biogas
In this paper solid oxide fuel cells operating with dry synthetic biogas have been examined. In order to increase their stability the layers of CuO-CeO2, Cu1.3Mn1.7O4 and Y0.08Sr0.92Ti0.8Fe0.2O3 -δ have been deposited on the Ni-YSZ anode site. These layers should catalyze the internal biogas reforming and prevent the carbon deposition on the anode site. It has been found that CuO-CeO2 and Cu1.3Mn1.7O4 catalysts led to an increase...
Structure and thermoelectric properties of Te/Ag/Ge/Sb (TAGS) materials obtained by reduction of melted oxide substrates
The Ge0.77Ag0.1Sb0.13Te1alloy was fabricated by a novel two step route. For that purpose firstly the oxide reagents were melted at high temperature and quenched into pellets. After that pellets were milled to the powder and then reduced in hydrogen at various temperatures and for various periods of time. Energy dispersive X-ray analysis indicated the possibility of successful fabrication of stoichiometric thermoelectric materials...
Structure and thermoelectric properties of Bi–Te alloys obtained by novel method of oxide substrates reduction
A novel method of thermoelectric materials fabrication has been developed. Oxide reagents have been melted at high temperature in air, quenched, milled to powder and reduced in hydrogen to form Bi–Te alloys. Structural and thermoelectric properties of samples have been investigated depending on initial composition and temperature of reduction process. Sample 25Bi2O3–75TeO2 reduced at 340 °C for 10 h has been found to be a p-type...
