One of the major problems for operating molten carbonate fuell cells is the corrosion of metal oxide electrodes. In this connection the dissolution of various oxides of transition metals in molten Li-K carbonates has been studied. Electrochemical behavior of several metal electrodes (Au, Ag, Cu, Fe, Al, Ti, Cr etc.) has been studied. A novel method for corrosion protection of metals in molten alkali carbonates is also developed by deposition of an AlN-TiN layer.
