Abstract

Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are novel electrochemical devices, which can directly convert microbial metabolic power into electricity using biodegradable organic materials. One of the fundamental challenges to commercialize MFCs is the development of efficient, stable, and cost-effective catalysts for oxygen reduction reaction. A different kind of approaches has been done to enhance the efficiency of MFCs including architecture, electrodes, caution exchange membrane and biocatalyst. In this review, author has focused on single and double chamber MFC which are using carbon based electrodes.
