Title ELECTRODE FOR MICROBIAL FUEL CELLS AND MICROBIAL FUEL CELL USING SAME
Abstract The purpose of the present invention is to provide: an electrode for microbial fuel cells, which is capable of generating a high power electric current in a microbial fuel cell; and a microbial fuel cell which uses the electrode for microbial fuel cells. Specifically provided, as an anode of a microbial fuel cell, is an electrode for microbial fuel cells, which comprises an electrode base that contains carbon and carbon nanowires that are formed on the whole or a part of the surface of the electrode base. Consequently, the electrode surface area is significantly increased and the affinity between an electron conductive microorganism and the electrode is increased. The efficiency of the charge transfer from the microorganism to the electrode can therefore be dramatically increased.
