A method of producing an electrode having a high performance in a simple and convenient manner which does not require the use of any of the medium, surfactant and pore-producing agent is disclosed. In the disclosed method, a layer including a catalyst powder is formed on a surface of a polymer electrolyte film or a porous conductive electrode substrate by supplying an electrostatically-charged catalyst powder to the polymer electrolyte film or the porous conductive electrode substrate. Alternatively, a layer including a catalyst powder is formed on a surface of a polymer electrolyte film or a porous conductive electrode substrate by spraying the catalyst powder on the surface of the polymer electrolyte film or the porous conductive electrode substrate together with a carrier gas, thereby to cause the catalyst powder to adhere to the surface.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
