The ion conductivity of two series of porous ceramic diaphragms impregnated with caustic potash was investigated by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. To understand the impact of the pore structure on ion conductivity, the three-dimensional (3-D) pore geometry of the diaphragms was characterized with synchrotron x-ray absorption tomography. Ion migration was calculated based on an extended...

The alkaline electrolyzer industry is facing the imminent necessity of replacing the asbestos diaphragms with a separator made of a new environmentally friendly material. The influence of a diaphragm's material and porosity on the ionic conductivity was studied for asbestos, zirconium dioxide, wollastonite and olivine diaphragms. Developed electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) set-up with...
