Depending on the ionic strength, solutions even having the same pH and the same concentration cause different electrode potentials. Chloride ions affect strongly the behavior of the electrode.
In particular, hydrogen starvation at the anode causes high electrode potentials that accelerate carbon support corrosion.
Multifunctional apparatus Elmetron CX (measurement accuracy 0.1 mV) was used for measuring the electrode potentials. Electromotive force (e.m.f) measurements were performed using the cell assembly: Ag/AgCl| Fl (10 molL ) in NaCl (10 molL ) solution|PVC membrane|test solution|SCE.
"Determining the location of the damage based on the measured electrode potentials is a challenging mathematical problem," co-author Dr Aku Seppnen, an academy research fellow in the Department of Applied Physics at the University of Eastern Finland, was quoted as saying.
Modes of the field-line behaviour are determined depending upon the values of electrode potentials and the system configuration.
All of the electrode potentials were given as versus Ag/AgCl and all of the current density values were normalized to the projected surface area.
In this work, we observed that the alkaline anode/acidic cathode alkaline-acidic media leads to a very high measured OCP of 1.43 V, while other combinations result in very low OCPs as a result of the pH dependence of standard electrode potentials. For the MLSPCFC operating in the alkaline anode/acidic cathode alkaline-acidic media, the measured OCP of 1.43 V was found to be in a reasonable agreement with the theoretical OCP of 2.52 V.
