Towards the Reduction of Pt Loading in High Temperature Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells – Effect of Fe‐N‐C in Pt‐alloy Cathodes

Pt poisoning by phosphate in high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cells (HT-PEMFC) leads to loadings up to 1 mgPt cm-2 per electrode of costly materials. While cheaper Fe-N-C catalysts are unaffected by phosphate deactivation and contribute to the catalysis of the oxygen reduction reaction, their volumetric activity is substantially lower. In this study, the effect of Pt-loading reduced hybrid cathodes for HT-PEMFC is investigated using commercial Celtec®-P-based assembling. A promising effect of Fe-N-C incorporation in terms of acid attraction and activity retention is found. A longer activation (230 h, 0.3 A cm-2) for the hybrid MEAs is necessary, due to the slower acid distribution within to Fe-N-Cs. This study shows the potential of Pt-content reduction by up to 25% compared to standard MEA using hybrid electrodes. Moreover, important insights for future strategies of cell activation are revealed for these hybrid MEAs.
