Ravikumar, MK and Shukla, AK (1996) Effect of Methanol Crossover in a Liquid-FeedPolymer-Electrolyte Direct Methanol Fuel Cell. In: Journal of the Electrochemical Society, 143 (8). pp. 2601-2606.
The performance of a liquid-feed direct methanol fuel cell employing a proton-exchange membrane electrolyte with Pt-Ru/C as anode and Pt/C as cathode is reported. The fuel cell can deliver a power density of ca. 0.2 $W/cm^2$ at 95°C, sufficient to suggest that the stack construction is well worthwhile.Methanol crossover across the polymer electrolyte at concentrations beyond 2 M methanol affects the performance of the cell which appreciates with increasing operating temperature.
