Research paper: Suppression of radical attack in polymer electrolyte membranes for fuel cells

Research paper: Suppression of radical attack in polymer electrolyte membranes for fuel cells

Research paper by Prof. Akari Hayashi and co-authors

Decomposition of polymer electrolyte membranes (PEMs) by radical species is a significant issue related to the chemical durability of polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs). A major contributor to radical formation is the oxygen crossover through the membrane from cathode to anode. The results in this study indicate that the addition of high oxygen barrier interlayer in Nafion 211 membranes can reduce radical formation in PEFC and improve chemical durability.

Research paper: Direct air capture by membranes

Research paper by Prof. Shigenori Fujikawa and Prof. Roman Selyanchyn

Reducing the rates of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere will not suppress global warming, and it is necessary to capture the CO2 that has been cumulatively emitted into the atmosphere as well. For this reason, negative CO2 emission technology, a technology to capture CO2 from the atmosphere, is considered essential. In this paper, we summarized our recent developments in membrane technology that brought the possibility of membrane-based gas separation to be considered as a new approach to direct air capture of CO2 (DAC). In this article, the potential of membrane technologies as DAC is discussed and future technology target is proposed.

Graphical abstract: Membrane-based direct air capture (m-DAC) can be used as a viable technology when combined with advanced CO2 transformation or use.
