      In the present study, Nafion/Titanium Silicon Oxide (TiSiO4) nanocomposite membranes were prepared by recasting method for proton exchange membrane fuel cells. In the present work, we calcined premixed SiO2 and TiO2 oxide to obtain TiSiO4 mixed oxide nanoparticles. The average diameter of the spherical TiSiO4 particles was 50 nm. Scanning electron microscopy results have proven the uniform and homogeneous distribution of TiSiO4 in Nafion.

      This paper investigated the idle performance of a hydrogen engine. It was found that the hydrogen engine could run table and exhaust almost zero NOx and CO emissions at idle and lean conditions. Increasing the excess air ratio was a good way for reducing the engine fuel energy consumption for a hydrogen engine at the idle condition.
