ECS Announces New Monograph, Fuel Cells: Problems and Solutions

(Pennington, NJ) – ECS is proud to announce the publication of a new monograph, Fuel Cells: Problems and Solutions, written by Vladimir S. Bagotsky. With hundreds of new developments and applications in fuel cells reported every month, this publication could not be timelier. Written for a broad audience, Fuel Cells: Problems and Solutions lets the reader understand what fuel cells do, how they do it, and discusses their role in the global economy. Readers will not only discover the great potential of fuel cells to solve a tremendous array of problems, but will also learn the key challenges in fuel cell development and commercialization that researchers are seeking to overcome.

This compact, easy-to-follow book is divided into four logical parts:

  • Part One, Introduction, outlines the complete history of fuel cell development and sets forth the working principles of a fuel cell;
  • Part Two, Major Types of Fuel Cells, examines the features of proton exchange membrane fuel cells, direct liquid fuel cells, phosphoric acid fuel cells, solid oxide fuel cells, and other important types of fuel cells;
  • Part Three, Inherent Scientific and Engineering Problems, explores fuel management, electrocatalysis, membranes, small fuel cells for portable devices, and mathematical modeling; and
  • Part Four, Commercialization of Fuel Cells, investigates some of the latest applications and discusses R&D activities around the world.

Advanced undergraduate and graduate students in engineering and chemistry can turn to this book for an ideal introduction to the technology and business of fuel cells. It is also recommended as an accessible reference for professionals in academia and industry, offering an overview of all aspects of the field.
