Abstract The effect of ball milling in making a silicon carbide slurry for the electrolyte matrix of a phosphoric acid fuel cell (PAFC) was studied by measuring the zeta potential and the particle-size distribution, and by analyzing cell performance. The ball-milled slurry gives a better particle distribution than the conventional mechanical-stirring method, and the particle distribution of the slurry depends on balling time and pH, which is confirmed by zeta potential. A single cell with a ball-milled electrolyte matrix also displays high performance. It is concluded that the ball-miiling method is preferable to the mechanical-strirring procedure for preparing silicon carbide slurries.
