Abstract : Electrochemical parameters were investigated for a new type intermediate temperature direct ammonia fuel cell. Effects of temperature and composition were studied. Single electrode potentials were measured by means of a nickel-nickel oxide reference electrode. Experimental problems related to difficulties in sealing cells and to electrode flooding are discussed. Theoretical aspects of the ammonia decomposition problem are analyzed. A systematic study plan is discussed. (Author)
