- In this study, we developed a new method to increase the
electrochemical performance of MLMFC by applying magnets
to the cathodes. The most troublesome issue in the construction
of an MFC is the continuous supply of oxidants, such as oxygen,
by energy-consuming devices. Therefore, the application of
magnetic force to the cathode might prove to be a simple and
inexpensive method to enhance the performance of MFCs.
This method might be expected to be particularly beneficial in
cases in which a sufficient amount of oxygen in the cathode area
cannot be provided by artificial aeration (i.e. sediment MFCs).
Further studies will be required to establish the electrochemical
characteristics of MLMFCs under various experimental conditions,
including the application of magnetic force to an anode
compartment to remove the oxygen from the fuel.
