An electrochemically active hydrogen diffusion barrier which comprises an anode layer, a cathode layer, and an intermediate electrolyte layer, which is conductive to protons and substantially impermeable to hydrogen. A catalytic metal present in or adjacent to the anode layer catalyzes an electrochemical reaction that converts any hydrogen that diffuses through the electrolyte layer to protons and electrons. The protons and electrons are transported to the cathode layer and reacted to form hydrogen. The hydrogen diffusion barrier is applied to a polymeri...
1. An electrochemically active hydrogen diffusion barrier, comprising:an anode layer and a cathode layer, each of the anode layer and the cathode layer comprising a polymer material that is permeable to hydrogen;an electrolyte layer disposed between the anode layer and the cathode layer, the electrolyte layer comprising a polymer material that is conductive to protons and substantially impermeable to hydrogen;a voltage source operably coupled to the anode layer and the cathode layer; anda catalytic material proximate an interface between at least one of ...
