The direct borohydride fuel cell (DBFC) has attracted increasing interest as a potential high power source for mobile and portable applications. Engineering design plays an important role in the development of the DBFC. This paper reports data for the selection of anode, cathode, and membrane materials for the DBFC. The best DBFC perfor mance is achieved with a Au anode, a Pt cathode, and a 3541P ion exchange membrane. The use of non-precious catalysts, e.g., Ag, leads to promising results. © 2006 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.
