A CeO2/MWCNT nanocomposite was synthesized by immersing carboxylic acid-functionalized MWCNTs in a cerium chloride solution and then calcining in argon to form CeO2/MWCNTs. In a laboratory test system, the reactant gas is usually humidified by passing it through a water bath in a bubble humidifier that is controlled at a desired temperature.

Catalyst particles are often embedded in the self-humidifying membrane, and they catalyze the reaction between oxygen and crossover hydrogen to produce water to humidify the membrane. It has a role as an antilipemic drug and a persistent organic pollutant. The resulting sulfonic acids were tested as homogeneous and reusable Brönsted acid for the esterification of octanoic acid by n-propanol.

The oxygen reaction at the anode of a fuel cell is generally much faster in an alkaline electrolyte than in an acidic electrolyte and since this is generally the limiting process, there are clear advantages to using alkali media. Direct liquid water injection [17] is another method for humidifying the reactant gases. This limits high temperature and low relative humidity operation of PEM fuel cells. The generally accepted mechanism of PFSA-based membrane chemical degradation is crossover of the gases through the membrane, which can result in the generation of hydrogen peroxide when the gases reach the other catalyst surface.

A similar electrode structure has been utilized for alkaline membranes, but the faster reaction speeds in the alkaline medium means that cheaper nickel-based catalytic material can also be used.

TGA results showed that MWCNTs represented about 25% of the membrane total weight (Fig. Initiation generally occurs at cell edges or catalyst defects, such as large particles or mud cracking. PFOS can be synthesized in industrial production or result from the degradation of precursors.
