Abstract
A NOVEL AND NEWLY DISCOVERED C60 CARBON MATERIAL WAS FOUND TO EXHIBIT UNIQUE ELECTROCHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL PROPROERTIES. C60 AND CATALYZED C60 ELECTRODES WILL BE FABRICATED BY VAPOR DEPOSITION AND DRY PRESSING. THESE ELECTRODES WILL BE FULLY CHARACTERIZED FOR HYDROGEN REDUCTION IN VARIOUS AQUESOUS ELECTROYTES. THE NATURE OF THE ELECTROCHEMICAL HYDROGENATION OF C60 WILL BE ESTABLISHED. A SINGLE CELL WITH NI-C60(HX) WILL ALSO BE CHARACTERIZED INCLUDING ITS SELF-DISCHARGE BEHAVIOR, TO ESTABLISH THE VAIBILITY OF THIS SYSTEM AS A SECONDARY BATTERY FOR AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS, AND THE VIABILITY OF C60(H X) ELECTRODES FOR FUEL CELL SYSTEMS.
