Electrochemical conversion of aqueous ethanol solution in an electrolyzer with a solid polymer electrolyte

Electrochemical conversion of aqueous ethanol solution in an electrolyzer with a solid polymer... The electrochemical conversion of an aqueous ethanol solution (40 vol %) in an electrolysis cell with a solid polymer electrolyte in the presence of various electrocatalysts (Pt, Ir, Ir0.3Ru0.3Sn0.4O2, and Pt0.5Ru0.5) was studied. The electrocatalytic conversion of the ethanol solution at low current densities (up to 0.3 A cm−2) is characterized by a significant (by up to 50%) decrease in the cell voltage relative to water electrolysis.

Abstract

The electrochemical conversion of an aqueous ethanol solution (40 vol %) in an electrolysis cell with a solid polymer electrolyte in the presence of various electrocatalysts (Pt, Ir, Ir0.3Ru0.3Sn0.4O2, and Pt0.5Ru0.5) was studied. The electrocatalytic conversion of the ethanol solution at low current densities (up to 0.3 A cm−2) is characterized by a significant (by up to 50%) decrease in the cell voltage relative to water electrolysis. Possible diffusion of ethanol from the anode zone to the cathode zone will not significantly affect operation of the platinum electrocatalyst.
