About this book

Although the high operating temperature of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) creates opportunities for using a variety of fuels, including low-grade hydrogen and those derived from biomass, it also produces difficulties in materials performance and often leads to materials degradation during operation. These obstacles have proven to be challenges in the path to greater commercialization.

Focusing on materials-related issues, this book provides state-of-the-art information for the selection and development of materials for improved SOFC performance. Summarizing progress in the field thus far, it describes current materials, future advances in materials, and significant technical problems that remain unresolved.
