This book provides a modern problem-solving compendium to help meet challenges in fuel cell science and technology worldwide. Along with the scientific foundation of this technology, the coverage includes recently developed strategies for the design, preparation, and characterization of catalytic materials for fuel cell electrodes, especially for new fuel cell cathodes. The methodology described includes a wide spectrum of methods for spurring new fuel cell catalysis concepts and improving existing designs to increase their performance. This is a key resource for a wide range of engineering and research scientist, professionals, and entrepreneurs.
Andrzej Wieckowski is Professor of Chemistry at the Universityof Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Professor Wieckowski pioneered thedevelopment of the method now known as Electrochemical NMR (EC-NMR)that combines metal/surface NMR and electrochemistry for studies ofinterfaces. Jens K. Norskov is Professor of Chemical Engineering andPhoton Science, Stanford University, and Director of the Center forInterface Science and Catalysis at the SLAC National AcceleratorLaboratory. His research interests include the theoreticaldescription of surfaces, catalysis, electrochemistry, materials,nanostructures, and biomolecules.
