A new preparation method for the catalyst layer in the electrodes of a polymer electrolyte fuel cell, based on the process of preparing perfluorosulfonate-ionomer (PFSI) colloid, was developed. In this method, both a good network of PFSI and uniformity of PFSIs on Pt particles were achieved with colloid formation of PFSI chains in the specific. Solid acid fuel cells (SAFCs) are a class of fuel cells characterized by the use of a solid acid material as the electrolyte. Similar to proton exchange membrane fuel cells and solid oxide fuel cells, they extract electricity from the electrochemical conversion of hydrogen- and oxygen-containing gases, leaving only water as a t SAFC systems use hydrogen gas . An electrolyte is a substance that produces an electrically conducting solution when dissolved in a polar solvent, such as dissolved electrolyte separates into cations and anions, which disperse uniformly through the ically, such a solution is neutral. If an electric potential is applied to such a solution, the cations of the solution are drawn to the electrode .   In recent years, the production fuel cell electrode and electrolyte materials by tape casting technique are being used intensively []. Especially, this technique is used in the preparation of membrane, electrodes and electrolyte matrix of the polymeric membrane fuel cell (PEMFC), molten carbonate and solid oxide (SOFC) fuel cell.
