DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ght52t/polymer) has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Polymer electrolyte membrane and direct methanol fuel cell technology: Fundamentals and performance of low temperature fuel cells" to their offering.

PEMFCs and DMFCs represent promising low-temperature electrochemical power generation technologies that operate on hydrogen and methanol respectively. These technologies have attracted intense worldwide commercialisation research and development efforts with a large element of these efforts directed at materials developments for fuel cell durability and long term operation. This two volume set presents a comprehensive and detailed review of the fundamentals, performance, and in situ characterisation of PEMFCs and DMFCs. Volume 1 covers the fundamental science and engineering of these types of fuel cell, and reviews routes to understand and improve upon fuel cell performance and operation.

Key Topics Covered:

Part 1: Fundamentals of polymer electrolyte membrane and direct methanol fuel cell technology: Fuels and fuel processing for low temperature fuel cells

- Membrane materials and technology for low temperature fuel cells

- Catalyst and membrane technology for low temperature fuel cells

- Gas diffusion media, flowfields and system aspects in low temperature fuel cells

- Recycling and life cycle assessment of fuel cell materials.

Part 2: Performance issues in polymer electrolyte membrane and direct methanol fuel cells: Operation and durability of low temperature fuel cells

- Catalyst ageing and degradation in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells

- Degradation and durability testing of low temperature fuel cell components

- Microstructure reconstruction and transport simulation in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells

- Multi-scale modeling of two-phase transport in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells

- Modelling and analysis of degradation phenomena in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells

- Experimental monitoring techniques for polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells.
