Abstract
Fuel flexibility is a major advantage of a solid oxide fuel cell as a power generation device. However, present fuel cell anodes do not tolerate the sulfur compounds that are commonly present in both military and commercial liquid fuels. The proposed work will concentrate on developing and demonstrating a sulfur tolerant anode for a solid oxide fuel cell. The performance demonstration will be done at a practical fuel utilization and operating temperature.
