Research at Applied Electrochemistry

The research activities in the group are concerning power sources (secondary batteries and fuel cells) and electrolytic processes. Descriptions of the different projects can be found in the links below to the KTH Research Project Database.

Fuel cells

Two different kinds of fuel cells are studied:
– polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFC)
– High temperature fuel cells
The electrochemical properties of the fuel cells and the components are characterised experimentally and by means of mathematical models.

PEFC

High temperature fuel cells

Secondary batteries

The research on secondary batteries is focussed on two battery types: lithium-ion batteries and sodium/metal chloride batteries (ZEBRA-batteries).The overall aim of these projects is twofold:
the development of lithium-ion batteries with better performance,
e.g. higher energy and power density and improved life-time, as well as improved understanding on how to use state-of-the-art batteries in the best possible way in advanced applications like hybrid electric vehicles.

Electrolytic processes

The research is concerned with chlorate production and investigation of controlled delamination of adhesives.
