Abstract
The operational characteristics of air cathodes having either manganese dioxide or silver as the electrocatalyst have been studied in fuel-electrolyte mixtures typical of those encountered in hydrazine/air fuel cells. Manganese dioxide was found to react chemically with hydrazine while silver was found to catalytically decompose hydrazine to gaseous products. A microporous polypropylene separator material was found to greatly reduce the hydrazine concentration at the air cathode and thus decrease the cathode polarization.
