AbstractA high-performance hydrogen generation system with fast kinetics and a wide range of operational temperature is highly desirable for promoting the implementation of hydrogen fuel cell technology. In the present study, we report a comparative study of the hydrogen generation properties from the reactions between sodium borohydride (NaBH4) and ethylene glycol (EG), water (H2O) or their mixture. Our study found that the glycolysis kinetics of NaBH4 is faster than the hydrolysis kinetics at moderate temperatures, but gets sluggish at low temperatures. As a solution, the combined usage of EG-water mixture as solvent and cobalt chloride (CoCl2) as a promoting additive enables the system to rapidly deliver H-2 at low temperatures. A series of control experiments have been conducted to evaluate the hydrogen generation property dependence on EG concentration, CoCl2 amount and ratio of EG-H2O mixture to NaBH4. The reaction byproducts were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy techniques. Our study demonstrated a high-performance hydrogen generation system with a wide range of operational temperature, which may lay the foundation for developing practical hydrogen source for mobile/portable applications.
