The fuel processor is the part of the fuel cell system that extracts hydrogen from an available fuel -- such as natural gas, propane, methanol, or ethanol -- and passes it along to the fuel cell stack where electricity is electrochemically generated.
Because they don't burn fuel but instead convert it electrochemically into hydrogen, water and electricity, they also have an ultra-clean emissions profile.
Cyclic voltammetry indicated that (TPP)FeCl undergoes three reversible reductions and can be reduced electrochemically into (TPP)[Fe.
These loads offer ultra-consistent copper jackets that are electrochemically fused to the bullet's core.
Its surface oxides have been converted into an inert, electrochemically stable metal incapable of supporting oxidation.
Another battery that could be seen in future is lithium-air technology, in which oxygen from air reacts electrochemically with the lithium.
Among specific topics are geometrical models for bare boron nanotubes, the synchrotron investigation of a silicon surface after low energy plasma treatment in hydrogen and argon, the precise determination of the atomic structure of a nanotube by electron diffraction, the scattering of the electromagnetic field by a dielectric nanotube covered by a thin metal layer, nanoporous titania electrochemically formed at low temperature, evaluating the morphofunctional state of platelets by scanning force microscopy, and thin film layers and multilayer nanostructures for photovoltaic applications.
It is still burning the hydrogen in the case of a hydrogen fuel cell but, rather than creating a spark, it is burning it electrochemically - combining it with oxygen and burning or oxidising it.
stainless steel rolled bar, electrochemically polished for a perfect surface finish.
The researchers have constructed an ultra-sensitive nanoprobe that can electrochemically sense as few as four circulating tumour cells, and it doesn't require any enzymes to produce a detectable signal.
Project highlights include installation of the FOG-receiving station; repairs to the current digester equipment, where methane is naturally produced from organic matter; a new automation system and controls; a high-efficiency boiler; and three 300-kilowatt Direct FuelCell units that will convert methane into hydrogen and then use the hydrogen to generate power electrochemically, without combustion.
Cincinnati Children's Hospital Research Foundation (Cincinnati, OH) has patented detection apparatus and methos for electrochemically determining the concentration of quinones and hydroquinones, such as Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10 and CoQ10H2) in biological fluids as well as CoQ9 and CoQ7.
