The World's Most Cutting-edge Research in Fuel Cell Technology

The World's Most Cutting-edge Research in Fuel Cell Technology


Professor Joong Hee Lee from Chonbuk National University’s WCU-funded BIN Fusion Technology Department published a research paper concerning High Temperature Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells in one of the world’s most renowned polymer science journals, “Progress in Polymer Science.”(Science Citation Index 23.75, henceforth referred to as PPS) (Vol 36, No 6). This marks his third publication in three years.

PPS is rated in the top 1st percentile among academic journals in polymer science, and Prof. Lee has lived up to the reputation of our university’s world-class BIN Fusion department by publishing his third paper in the journal in three years.

This research focuses on advancements and challenges facing Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC). Specifically, the paper discusses how High Temperature PEMFC (HT-PEMFC) overcomes previous limitations of Low Temperature PEMFC, such as carbon monoxide poisoning, heat management, and water leaching. Prof. Lee also details a proton transport mechanism and suggests there is more research to do in the areas of polymeric membranes to efficiently optimize the use of HT-PEMFC.

This technology particularly serves well in automobile applications since HT-PEMFC does not need a cooling system to offset the heat generated and maintain an optimum working temperature.

Prof. Lee said, “I hope the information from our research will point Korea’s fuel cell energy industry towards the right direction, and contribute to the development of the next generation of fuel cell technology.”
