Characterizing Fuel Cell Components for Better Performance and Manufacturing Quality


A fuel cell like  a typical hydrogen/PEM type involves a unique blend of heterogeneous catalysis, electrochemistry, gas and water management. Design and manufacturing need to consider the active area of catalysts, nanoparticle size of powders, pore size of the gas diffusion layer, hydrophobicity/ hydrophilicity of the various components and so on.

This webinar will present various methods of physical and chemical characterization including

  • Chemisorption
  • Physisorption
  • Water vapor sorption
  • Dynamic light scattering and more,

Suitable for scientists and engineers working in research, development and quality assurance.

Dr. Martin Thomas, Anton Paar QuantaTec’s lead scientist, has more than 37 years of experience in powder and porous materials characterization, 27 of those with Quantachrome Instruments before Anton Paar’s acquisition in 2018. Dr. Thomas graduated from the University of Birmingham (UK) with a master’s degree in analytical chemistry followed by a Ph.D. in physical-inorganic chemistry. He is named co-inventor on 10 patents relating to porous solids and their characterization, and is co-author of the book “Characterization of Porous Solids and Powders: Surface Area, Pore Size and Density” (published by Springer).
