About this Textbook

Fuel Cells: Fundamentals to Applications is a concise source of the basic electrochemical principles and engineering aspects involved in the development and commercialization of fuel cells. It describes the applications and techno-economic assessment of fuel cell technologies along with an in-depth discussion of conventional and novel approaches pursued for generating energy.

This book is divided into four parts. Parts I and II explain basic and applied electrochemistry relevant to an understanding of fuel cells. Part III covers engineering and technology aspects and Part IV, applications and economics. The first part covers, in detail, the electrode kinetics and electrocatalysis of charge-transfer reactions, and leading electrochemical technologies with focus on relevance to fuel cells. The second part addresses the governing principles of fuel cells, electrocatalysis of fuel cell reactions and experimental techniques pertinent to fuel cell research and development. The third part is devoted to modeling of fuel cell systems and a thorough discussion of fuels, fuel processing and fuel storage, transmission, and distribution. The final part deals with the status of the fuel cell technologies, their applications and economics.

This book is useful for undergraduate and graduate students and scientists who are interested in fuel cells. It will also serve as an excellent teaching tool. Unlike any other book written on fuel cells, each chapter contains problems based on the discussions in the text.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The present book has been written by an expert recognized by everybody in the special field of fuel cells as well as in electrochemistry in general. … All chapters end with suggestions for further reading, a list of cited references, and some problems. … The book has been carefully prepared and produced. … Its price is adequate and puts it within reach of both libraries and researchers. It can be recommended wholeheartedly.” (Rudolf Holze, Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry, Vol. 11 (12), 2007)
