We present a method of using inkjet printing to deposit Nafion ionomer as the transport media onto catalyst layer made into membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) for polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEMFCs). This method provides a more suitable mode of controlling the solution deposition than the existing deposition methods such as spray painting. The cyclic voltammetry results also show that the inkjet printing method has better performance than spray painting by improving catalyst efficiency. Using the appropriate Nafion loading of 0.64 mg cm-2 by inkjet printing, we have demonstrated that this technique can be used to improve the performance of the MEA for PEMFCs.
