About this book

A major part of the competitiveness gap of polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC) technology in automotive and stationary co-generation applications is due lack of durability. This book analyzes the relevant degradation processes in PEFC on the level of components, cells and stacks, and applications. Prominent authors from the PEFC field describe and analyze in 23 chapters the relevant degradation mechanisms and mitigation strategies.

Reviews

From the reviews: “The editors of this book have brought together a strong collection of … topics of PEMFC design and operation, and provide a solid overview of all key aspects of their durability. … for students and new workers in the field, this book could serve as a short course which allows them to critically read the literature and to understand the conference papers on the subject from a solid frame of reference.” (David A. Schiraldi, Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics, Vol. 210, 2009)
