Abstract:

A novel and newly discovered C60 carbon material was found to exhibit unique electrochemical and physical properties. C60 and catalyzed C60 electrodes for hydrogen storage and supplies will be fabricated by vapor deposition and dry pressing. These electrodes will be fully characterized as hydrogen electrodes in C60Hx-air fuel cells. The nature of the electrochemical hydrogenation and dehydrogenation of C60 as a function of environmental conditions will be established. A fuel cell will also be characterized including its self-discharge, charge and discharge characteristics and efficiency to establish the viability of htis system as a low cost, light weight, high power density secondary battery for producing power on the battlefield.
