Recently, fuel cell is a good alternative for energy source. Separator is a important component for fuel cell. In this study, The surface of separator was modified for corrosion resistance and electric conductivity. Reduced graphene oxide (rGO) was made by Staudenmaier`s method. Nickel, phosphorus and rGO were coated on 6061 aluminum alloy as a separator of proton exchange membrane fuel cell by composite electroless plating. Scanning electron microscope, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy were used to examine the morphology of Ni-P-rGO. Surface images were shown that the rGO was dispersed on the surface of Ni-P electroless plating, and nickel was combined with the un-reduced oxygen functional group of rGO.
