Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Alkaline direct ethanol fuel cell (ADEFC) is a promising environment-friendly energy converter for the production of clean and efficient power. This chapter describes the electrode reaction mechanisms of ADEFC and the transport and degradation mechanisms in anion exchange membranes and the challenges of catalyst and membrane research and development of ADEFC. The understanding of reaction mechanisms in membranes and catalysts is the prerequisite to improve the performance and to develop new materials for ADEFC for future use in portable and small stationary applications.
