  • Patent number: 9901917
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods and designs of enclosed-channel reactor system for manufacturing catalysts or supports. Both of the configuration designs force the gaseous precursors and purge gas flow through the channel surface of reactor. The precursors will transform to thin film or particle catalysts or supports under adequate reaction temperature, working pressure and gas concentration. The reactor body is either sealed or enclosed for isolation from atmosphere. Another method using super ALD cycles is also proposed to grow alloy catalysts or supports with controllable concentration. The catalysts prepared by the method and system in the present invention are noble metals, such as platinum, palladium, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium and osmium, or transition metals such as iron, silver, cobalt, nickel and tin, while supports are silicon oxide, aluminum oxide, zirconium oxide, cerium oxide or magnesium oxide, or refractory metals, which can be chromium, molybdenum, tungsten or tantalum.

  • Patent number: 7914938
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a flat fuel cell combining runner plates and a conducting layer. The flat fuel cell includes two runner plates and a conducting layer between the runner plates. There are conducting blocks embedded into the predefined locations on the assembly surfaces of two runner plates. A concave flow passage is shaped by the assembly surfaces of runner plates and the conducting blocks, thus providing a unique structure combining the runner plates and conducting layer. The conducting blocks are electrically connected through the contact of convex flanges on the conducting blocks. Thus, the flat fuel cells are developed thin, making it possible to greatly reduce manufacturing assembly costs without the need of electric wires and to achieve better economic efficiency and applicability.

  • Patent number: 7485387
    Abstract: The present invention provides a fuel cell module compatible with a dry cell. The fuel cell module includes an enclosure, a power generating unit, a hydrogen storage unit and positive/negative output ends. The hollow enclosure has an internal space, and is provided with some preset through-holes, allowing external oxygen to enter into the space. The power generating unit and hydrogen storage unit are mounted into the space of the enclosure. Positive and negative output ends are placed at both sides or adjacent at one side of the enclosure, thereby guiding the positive and negative charge generated by the power generating unit; since the fuel cell modules are compatible with existing conventional dry cells. These modules are widely applied to existing electrical or electronic products.

  • Publication number: 20080160383
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a fuel cell module with a thermal feedback mechanism. The fuel cell module includes a hydrogen storage container, a fuel cell body and a housing. The hydrogen storage container has a tank, a valve, and hydrogen storage alloy. The fuel cell body is integrated with the hydrogen storage container, such that the electricity-generating part of the fuel cell body faces the hydrogen storage container. Furthermore, heat generated from the electrochemical reaction can be fed back to the hydrogen storage container. This heat could increase the temperature of the hydrogen storage container, leading to a more stable discharge reaction and subsequently improving the performance of the fuel cell.
