In the present study the composite membranes consisting of macroporous silicon matrix saturated with the polymer gel-electrolyte based on polyvinyl alcohol etherified by phenolsulfonic acid were obtained. These structures were tested in an air-hydrogen fuel cell at the ambient conditions. Cathodic and anodic processes in electrochemical cells with symmetric and non-symmetric gas electrodes were studied. It was shown that the operation of such an air-hydrogen fuel cell is limited by the cathodic process. On the basis of the obtained data the way for the fuel cell efficiency increasing were determined.
