The single chamber fuel cell (SCFC) is a novel simplification of the conventional solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) into which a premixed fuel/air mixture is introduced. It relies on the selectivity of the anode and cathode catalysts to generate a chemical potential gradient across the cell. For SCFC running on hydrocarbon fuels, the anode catalyst promotes in-situ internal reforming of the hydrocarbon and electrochemical oxidation of the syngas, while the cathode catalyst reduces oxygen simultaneously. Laboratory tests of small designs of such fuel cells have demonstrated excellent electrical performance (1, 2).
