Deactivation mechanism of a reforming catalyst by electrolyte in a direct fuel cell (DFC) is related to catalyst composition, surface acidity, and pore structures. This study helps to design and synthesize poison resistance catalyst. It will increase DFC stack performance and longevity by improved thermal management.
