Reports on Materials Science Findings from Yanshan University Provide New Insights (A commercial lithium battery LiMn-oxide for fuel cell applications)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- A new study on Materials Science is now available. According to news reporting originating in Qinhuangdao, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Hereby we report first a commercial lithium battery LiMn-oxide (LMO) positive electrode material for fuel cell applications."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Yanshan University, "The obtained LMO can be used for both anode and cathode in a three-layer fuel cell, but displays low electro-catalytic activity and power output. Using a nanocomposite approach we have significantly improved the cell performance from tens mW cm(-2) up to 210 mW cm(-2), which is technically useful for low temperature (bellow 600 degrees C) ceramic fuel cells."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "We also constructed single-layer fuel cell using the LMO/SDC-metal oxide composite and achieved even better performances than those for conventional anode-electrolyte-cathode three-layer fuel cells."
