Abstract

Microbial fuel cells (MFC) are microbial devices that convert chemical energy into the form of electricity through the catalytic activity of microbes. In a MFC, microbes oxidize electron donors and the resulting electrons are transferred to the anode, which is separated from the cathode by a cation exchange membrane. The cathode is aerated. Due to the potential developed between the two electrodes, electrons move from anode to cathode when they are connected through a circuit. Mediators have been used in the conventional MFC to facilitate the electron transfer from the electrochemically inactive microbial cell to an electrode. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 228th ACS National Meeting (Philadelphia, PA 8/22-26/2004).
