英文摘要: Abstract(#br)The organic hydride of the toluene/methylcyclohexane (TL/MCH) system is one of the best energy carriers for renewable energies. In order to improve the energy conversion efficiency of the toluene hydrogenation process with water splitting, we have proposed the direct TL electrohydrogenation along with the water splitting process using an electrolyzer and have improved its performance. An analysis of the polarizations was essential for further improvement. In this study, the polarization properties of the anode (IrO 2 -based DSE®) and cathode (PtRu/C) were independently evaluated using a small electrolyzer equipped with a reversible hydrogen electrode (RHE). The cathode polarization was dominated by mass transfer above 100 mA cm −2 . On the other hand, the anode polarization...
