A valuable addition to the established and highly acclaimed Handbook of Fuel Cells (2003). Highlights recent developments, particularly in the fields of new materials, molecular modelling and durability.
A timely addition to the highly acclaimed four-volume handbook set; volumes 5 and 6 highlight recent developments, particularly in the fields of new materials, molecular modeling and durability. Since the publication of the first four volumes of the Handbook of Fuel Cells in 2003, the focus of fuel cell research and development has shifted from optimizing fuel cell performance with well-known materials to developing new materials concepts, and to understanding the origins of materials and fuel cell degradation. This new two-volume set provides an authoritative and timely guide to these recent developments in fuel cell research.
