Abstract

"This dissertation is comprised of five sections. The first section includes a review of the literature on the development of glass and glass-ceramic sealants for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), including the critical issues for sealant design. Section two describes a quantitative approach to characterize the isothermal crystallization of glass using differential thermal analysis (DTA), with Li₂O-2SiO₂, as the model system. Section three applies this approach using a SOFC sealing glass (glass #27)...Section four includes the quantitative study of reactions between sealing glass and Cr₂O₃ to understand the formation of deleterious chromate phases...Section five describes the volatility of B₂O₃ from sealing glasses under OSFC operational conditions"--Abstract, leaf iv.
