Water soluble catalysts, (m)meso-tetra(n-methyl-4-pyridyl)porphinepentachloride (m=fe, co, mn & cu), have been incorporated into the polymer binder of oxygen reduction cathodes in membrane electrode assemblies used in pem fuel cells and found to support encouragingly high current densities. The voltages achieved are low compared to commercial platinum catalysts but entirely consistent with the behavior observed in electroanalytical measurements of the homogeneous catalysts.
new patent Fuel cell with improved thermal management
A fuel cell including at least two stacks of electrochemical cells, a heat management system including a circuit for flowing a coolant into each of the stacks fed in parallel, and an outside circuit for flowing the coolant outside the stacks. The outside circuit includes a first subcircuit including a heat exchanger and a second subcircuit directly connected to an inlet of the inside circuit, and controlling valves for controlling flow of the coolant toward either or both subcircuits as a function of temperature of the coolant at an output of each of the stacks.
new patent Fuel cell device and system
Fuel cell devices and fuel cell systems are provided. The fuel cell devices may include one or more active layers containing active cells that are connected electrically in series.
new patent Oxygen plenum configurations of components in low cost planar rechargeable oxide-ion battery (rob) cells and stacks
An rob stack (10′) contains a plurality of stacked rob cells (10) made from: thin metal bipolar housings (13) having air inlets and exits and horizontal channels for feeding air between the inlets (16) and exits (17), the channel having top ridges and also grooves (25) for containing active material (34); a porous air electrode (21/39) next to the air channels allowing air contact; a metal electrode (36); and an oxygen ion transfer membrane (37) acting as electrolyte; wherein the plurality of all the assemblies form vertical air inlet and outlet plenums.. .
new patent Phase separated silicon-tin composite as negative electrode material for lithium-ion and lithium sulfur batteries
A composite of silicon and tin is prepared as a negative electrode composition with increased lithium insertion capacity and durability for use with a metal current collector in cells of a lithium-ion battery or a lithium-sulfur battery. This negative electrode material is formed such that the silicon is present as a distinct amorphous phase in a matrix phase of crystalline tin.
new patent Layered materials with improved magnesium intercalation for rechargeable magnesium ion cells
Electrochemical devices which incorporate cathode materials that include layered crystalline compounds for which a structural modification has been achieved which increases the diffusion rate of multi-valent ions into and out of the cathode materials. Examples in which the layer spacing of the layered electrode materials is modified to have a specific spacing range such that the spacing is optimal for diffusion of magnesium ions are presented.
new patent Energy storage apparatus having a temperature control device
An energy storage device (1) has at least one energy storage cell (2), preferably a number of energy storage cells (2), and a temperature controlling means, which is designed for controlling the temperature of the energy storage cell (2) or an assembly formed by the energy storage cells (2), and at least one clamping element (8, 20), which is designed as a functional component part of the temperature controlling means and is designed for carrying a heat transfer medium.. .
new patent Pressure-relief mechanism to improve safety in lithium-polymer battery cells
The disclosed embodiments relate to a battery cell which includes a weakness for relieving pressure. This battery cell includes a jelly roll comprising layers which are wound together, including a cathode with an active coating, a separator and an anode with an active coating.
new patent Composite structure core crush prevention
A composite structure includes a first laminate and a second laminate. At least one core assembly is located between the first laminate and the second laminate.
new patent Medical composition for inhibiting the growth of cancer stem cells
A medical composition for inhibiting the growth of cancer stem cells is disclosed. The medical composition is prepared by mixing herbal medicines with water or alcohol, followed by heating and extraction to obtain a filtrate.
new patent Hemoglobin-based oxygen carrier-containing pharmaceutical composition for cancer targeting treatment and prevention of cancer recurrence
The present invention provides a pharmaceutical composition containing a hemoglobin-based oxygen carrier for treating cancer, preventing recurrence and metastasis of cancerous tumor. The composition can be used alone or in combination with at least one chemotherapeutic agent such as 5fu, bortezomib, doxorubicin, cisplatin, or any combination thereof.
