The possibility of using base metals and alloys based on them as electrodes for a new type of membraneless fuel cells operating on renewable fuel has been investigated. The phase boundary of two immiscible liquids in the ethanol-water-potassium hydroxide system plays a role of a membrane in these elements. Top phase of this fuel cell has significant alcohol content and insignificant electrolyte content, bottom phase has significant electrolyte content and insignificant alcohol content. Platinum- and ruthenium-coated titanium electrode, carbon electrode and stainless steel electrode were used as the anode. Stainless steel electrode and carbon steel electrode were used as the cathode. The possibility of using ferrous alloys as anode and cathode catalysts in this type of fuel cells is shown.
