Abstract
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.
