American Elements Announces Online Publication Of Its Fuel Cell Raw Materials List

Posted on September 08, 2006

American Elements announced today the publication of a list of non-proprietary raw materials manufactured by the company that can be used to produce solid oxide fuel cells. American Elements has worked closely with the major U.S., European, and Asian efforts to develop a cost effective solid oxide fuel cell by manufacturing the essential electrochemical raw materials. The materials list ( reflects an American Elements desire to make these raw materials and the know-how to make fuel cells more generally available to entrepreneurs and researchers in hopes of fostering a greater global effort to develop a commercial system.

American Elements technical staff is available to provide customer guidance on topics such as thermal compatibility of layers, co-firing conditions, long term stability, ink rheology, and circuit efficiency. American Elements electrochemical laboratory tests electrolyte resistivity, densities, coarsening and other parameters.

American Elements' fuel cell material manufacturing emphasizes solid state preparation of Perovskite cathode materials including Lanthanum Strontium Manganite (LSM), Lanthanum Strontium Ferrite (LSF), Lanthanum Strontium Cobaltite Ferrite (LSCF), Lanthanum Strontium Chromite (LSC), and Lanthanum Strontium Gallate Magnesite (LSGM) with doping levels, surface areas and other parameters to customer specifications; Nickel Cermet compositions with YSZ (Yttria stabilized Zirconia) and Ionically Conductive Electrolytes including Yttria stabilized Zirconia, Scandium doped Zirconia, Samarium doped Ceria and Gadolinium doped Ceria.

A new Fuel Cell Materials page summarizes the interaction, purposes and limitations of various solid oxide fuel cell compositions and reviews manufacturing processes.

For further technical and pricing information on American Elements' full line of solid oxide fuel cell products, please contact your local American Elements distributor or American Elements U.S. corporate headquarters at (1)310-208-0551, FAX (1)310-208-0351 or . American Elements is America's leading manufacturer of rare earth and other advanced material products with distribution offices in Europe, Asia and South America.
