Abstract

THIS WORK DESCRIBES A SYSTEMATIC STUDY OF CORROSION RESISTANCE AND WETTING UNDER WELL DEFINED CONDITIONS (AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE TO THOSE AT THE ANODE) IN CURRENTLY OPERATING MOLTEN CARBONATE FUEL CELLS (MCFC). UNDER THE REDUCING CONDITIONS OUTLINED, NICKEL 200, MONEL 400, RHODIUM, RUTHENIUM, PLATINUM, PALLADIUM, GOLD, SILVER AND ZIRCONIUM OXIDE EXHIBITED RESISTANCE TO CORROSION BY MOLTEN CARBONATE. THESE MATERIALS COULD BE USED AT THE ANODE IN A MCFC. IN ADDITION NICKEL 200, MONEL 400, RHODIUM AND RUTHENIUM SHOWED SIGNIFICANT NON-WETTING UNDER HYDROGEN. ALLOYS OF PRECIOUS METALS WITH STANDARD MATERIALS MAY ENHANCE THE PROPERTIES OF ANODE COMPONENTS.
