Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are functionalized with poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and a small amount (0.05 wt %) of functionalized CNT is blended with PVA solution to form PVA/CNT composite. The alkaline-doped PVA and PVA/CNT are tested in fuel cells fed with NaBH4/NaOH or KBH4/KOH solution. The resulting peak power density in an alkaline KBH4 fuel cell loaded with PVA/CNT/KOH electrolyte is much higher than those achieved with Nafion and other electrolytes reported in the literature.
