Product Description


" invaluable reference source for everyone working in this significant and dynamic field…as well as for electrochemists, scientists, engineers, and policy-makers…should also find a place in academic, industrial, and governmental libraries." (The Chemical Educator, October 2004)

" admirable up-to-the-minute state of the art source of informative data and descriptions of fuel cell technology." (Fuel)

" awesome excellent up-to-date source...newcomers to fuel-cell technology will need look no further..." (Chemistry & Industry, 19 April 2004)

About the Author

Wolf Vielstich started research work on Fuel Fells and Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis at Ruhrchemie / Oberhausen. Working in the field of Fundamental and Applied Electrochemistry at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of Bonn University, he completed his Habilitation in Physical Chemistry in 1962. From 1965 he was a professor and director at the Bonn Institute. His special interest was new experimental methods like Rotating Ring Electrodes, online MS, Insitu IR and UHV-analysis of electrode surfaces, as well as to Batteries and Fuel Cells. His work in Electrochemistry has resulted in more than 250 publications, over 10 patents, books on Fuel Cells and Electrochemical Kinetics, and textbooks on Electrochemistry. From 1986 to 1993, Professor Vielstich was co-ordinator of the first European project on the DMFC and in 1998 he received the Faraday Medal of the Royal Chemical Society, UK.

Arnold Lamm has been involved in industrial research in this field for over 7 years, firstly at the DaimlerBenz research centre in Ulm, Germany, where his projects included methanol-reforming, methanolcatalysis, reactor engineering, thermodynamic calculations and system engineering of PEMFC-systems based on methanol. He also worked on the development of a simulation program as a basis for the first methanol-reformer car Necar III. He also worked as Project leader (PEMFC-power station) at the former AEG Energietechnik T&D, Frankfurt, Germany in a project with Ballard Generation Systems. Since 1997 Dr Lamm has been Senior manager for fuel cell systems at the central research of DaimlerChrysler, where his work has included a the demonstration of the worldwide first DMFC-vehicle, development of gasoline/diesel fuel processors for stationary and mobile applications and development of advanced components for FC-propulsion systems (e.g. air-supply). He holds over 40 patents on the fuel cell field.

Hubert A. Gasteiger has spent 9 years in academic research in fundamental electrocatalysis and fuel cell-related gas-phase catalysis, plus 5 years of industrial research and development in fuel cell components development. Dr Gasteiger was involved in the stack and stack-component design for GM / Opel's H2-powered Fuel Cell Cars (H1, H2, and H3), and since 1998 has been manager in stack components (membranes, catalysts, bipolar plate materials and coatings, MEAs) development at GM/Opel's Global Alternative Propulsion Center in Mainz-Kastel, Germany, and at GM's Fuel Cell Activities facility in Honeoye Falls, New York, USA. Dr Gasteiger has published 45 publications in refereed journals and co-chaired the 2000 Gordon Research Conference on Fuel Cells.

Format: Hardcover
If you're interested in the fuel cells, I suggest you to start with this book (though it's very expensive!). It will provide you the necessary knowledge on the fuel cell technology under every detailed issue or topic you can think of. This "state of the art" book also includes very good literature reviews and outlooks, which save you a heck of time looking for scattered papers!

HASH(0xa788bb34) out of 5 stars The necessary tool for the fuel cell researcher and engineer Oct. 23 2008
By Enrico Negro - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book collection is a necessary tool for the interested researcher, scientist or engineer in the field of fuel cells. I would strongly recommend this book as it provides in just one title most of the information required for a fundamental understanding of this type of energy-conversion devices. This book is not for the novice reader, though: in several instances, the high level of detail and completeness requires an in-depth understanding of the fundamental physical and chemical processes involed. This book was released in 2003: this means that, as of 2008, research has significantly progressed reaching much higher levels of understanding and system performance. However, this title remains a fundamental sourcebook to understand clearly the basics of this important field of research and technology, and will be set up-to-date with two more forthcoming titles of the same authors in the same collection.

Format: Hardcover
This must be the most expensive book on Amazon. Why???

No content can justify this price.
