Conductive and hydrophilic coating for fuel cell bipolar plate.
An elec. conductive plate for fuel cell applications comprises a plate body having at least one channel-defining surface and an elec. conductive hydrophilic layer disposed over at least a portion of the channel-defining surface. The elec. conductive layer includes residues of a silane coupling agent and elec. conductive hydrophilic carbon. [on SciFinder(R)]
