Abstract

The characterization and application of graphene oxide membranes as fuel cell electrolytes is explored and presented. Morphology, chemical composition, mechanical and electrochemical properties of vacuum-filtration prepared graphene oxide membranes and their performance as fuel cell electrolytes are discussed. Our graphene oxide membrane fuel cell (GOMFC) showed a maximum power density of ∼ 6 mW/cm2 at 30 °C. Power density exhibited a decrease with increasing temperature and operation time, possibly due to partial loss of oxygen through reduction, and a resulting decrease in water-mediated proton transport.
