Abstract

Hydrogen gas crossover, which reduces current efficiency, is critical issue in high pressure PEMWE (Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Water Electrolysis). This study proposes controlled wettability current collector, which enhances the detachment of hydrogen gas bubble from the current collector and decreases the crossover. A high pressure operation of a PEMWE cell with visualization clarified that the wettability impacts on the bubble dynamics and changes the current efficiency. Among the current collectors prepared, hydrophilic one indicated higher current efficiency and suggested smaller crossover.
