Abstract
Pd, Ru, and Cu secondary catalysts were incorporated into the nickel-yttria-stabilized zirconia nanostructured-anode functional layer (nano-AFL) of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) by a combination of pulsed-laser-deposition and sputtering. The activity of these catalysts for direct internal steam reforming (DISR) of n-butane at the SOFC unit cell level were investigated at low temperatures (500– 600  °C) by comparing the electrochemical performance among the Ref-cell (the cell without catalyst at the nano-AFL) and Pd-, Ru-, and Cu-cell (the cells with Pd-, Ru- and Cu- incorporated at the nano-AFL). The steam-to-carbon ratio (SCR) and the operating temperature were varied and the effect on DISR of n-butane in the Ref-, Pd-, Ru-, and Cu-cell were systematically studied. Secondary catalyst incorporation appears to enhance the electrochemical reaction and thermochemical reactions, such as steam reforming and water-gas-shift reactions, which results in the cell performance improvement at all tested conditions in comparison with that of the Ref-cell.
