Brief description of the invention
The invention provides an external Microfluidics of electric power generation. For the construction of the external has been implemented and developed a new method not used in the State of the art and which consists basically in compress hot material base. Indifferent to the present invention electrodes and, together with the characteristics of the cell construction, supplying a power not achieved in cells known prior to the filing of the present invention were also.
The invention consists in the integration of several connected microcells electricamenteen series. Each external includes a Microfluidic channel, two electrocatalysts for high selectivity and current collectors. The microdeldas array is mounted on a base plate, supplemented by packaging and cover.
Objects of the invention
The present invention has as main objects providing a cell generating electricity-based Microfluidic exceeding the power generated in the current Microfluidic fuel cells.
Develop an electrochemical microdispositivo or external generator for continuous power able to use fuels coming from implantable body fluids in the body, eliminating the need to use batteries whose life time is limited.
Another object of the present invention is to provide a process of construction of cells Microfluidic representing a technical advantage in that not required infrastructure especially complicated for its construction and at a cost significantly less.
A further object of the present invention is to provide a method of generating electric power using bodily fluids such as blood or an organic fuel such as glucose.
An additional object is the construction of highly selective electrodes which catalyze the reaction of transformation of chemical energy to electric energy enhancing the performance of the cell itself.
Previous objects and others will be met through the construction of a cell Microfluidics in accordance with guidelines stated here and claimed essentially in the adjoining claims, which constitute, together with the present description and figures attached, the invention claimed as of our property.
The corrosion behaviour and electrochemical stability of two different electrocatalyst supports based on Sb-doped SnO2 (ATO) were evaluated in an acidic medium over a wide potential range (0–1.8 V vs. NHE). The results were compared with those from a commercial Vulcan carbon XC-72 (254 m2 g−1) support.
