Electrocatalysis in Fuel Cells: A Non- and Low- Platinum by Meng Li, Radoslav R. Adzic (auth.), Minhua Shao (eds.)

By Meng Li, Radoslav R. Adzic (auth.), Minhua Shao (eds.)

Fuel cells are essentially the most promising fresh power conversion units which could clear up the environmental and effort difficulties in our society. besides the fact that, the excessive platinum loading of gas cells - and therefore their excessive fee - prevents their commercialization. Non- or low- platinum electrocatalysts are had to reduce the gas phone expense.

Electrocatalysis in gas Cells: A Non and coffee Platinum Approach is a finished ebook summarizing contemporary advances of electrocatalysis in oxygen aid and alcohol oxidation, with a selected specialize in non- and low-Pt electrocatalysts. All twenty 4 chapters have been written by means of around the globe specialists of their fields. the basics and purposes of novel electrocatalysts are mentioned completely within the booklet.

The e-book is aimed toward researchers within the box, postgraduate scholars and teachers, and scientists and engineers at gasoline telephone and car businesses. it may possibly also be a reference e-book if you happen to have an interest during this area.
