Abstract

In order to improve the mass productivity of polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs), it is useful to have a fully-integrated structure from electrocatalysts to gas diffusion layer. Although carbon support is widely used for PEFCs, carbon corrosion may occur on the cathode side. To solve these technological issues, in this study, non-carbon support is directly prepared on the microporous layer (MPL) coated on the gas diffusion layer (GDL) by arc plasma deposition (APD). Pt catalyst nanoparticles are then deposited by the APD on the non-carbon support to prepare a "Pt/non-carbon support/MPL/GDL" integrated structure. Microstructure of the electrocatalyst layers and electrochemical properties of such MEAs are analyzed.
