Provides a comprehensive overview of recent developments in ceramic materials for intermediate-temperature solid oxide fuel cells (IT-SOFCs)
Compares the characteristics, advantages and disadvantages of new and conventional materials for fabricating solid oxide fuel cells
Reviews the practical applications of IT-SOFCs and their potential
Covers fundamental mechanisms and potential problems of IT-SOFCs
This book discusses recent advances in intermediate-temperature solid oxide fuel cells (IT-SOFCs), focusing on material development and design, mechanism study, reaction kinetics and practical applications. It consists of five chapters presenting different types of reactions and materials employed in electrolytes, cathodes, anodes, interconnects and sealants for IT-SOFCs. It also includes two chapters highlighting new aspects of these solid oxide fuel cells and exploring their practical applications. This insightful and useful book appeals to a wide readership in various fields, including solid oxide fuel cells, electrochemistry, membranes and ceramics.
