Polymer Electrolytes Fundamentals and Applications (Hardcover)
|The development of high performance polymer electrolytes is key to improving a number of devices such as batteries and fuel cells. "Polymer Electrolytes: Fundamentals and Applications" reviews lithium, proton, polyvalent, and composite polymer electrolytes. The structure, ion transport, and other relevant properties of these electrolytes are discussed, as well as their applications in such areas as lithium batteries, fuel cells, electrochromic and electrochemical devices, solar cells, chemical sensors and supercapacitors.|
From the Publisher:
Polymer electrolytes are electrolytic materials that are widely used in batteries, fuel cells and other applications such as supercapacitors, photoelectrochemical and electrochromic devices. Polymer Electrolytes: Fundamentals and Applications provides an important review of this class of ionic conductors, their properties and applications. Part one reviews the various types of polymer electrolyte compounds, with chapters on ceramic polymer electrolytes, natural polymer-based polymer electrolytes, composite polymer electrolytes, lithium-doped hybrid polymer electrolytes, hybrid inorganic-organic polymer electrolytes. There are also chapters on ways of characterizing and modeling polymer electrolytes. Part two discusses applications such as solar cells, supercapacitors, electrochromic and electrochemical devices, fuel cells and batteries. With its distinguished editors and international team of contributors, Polymer Electrolytes: Fundamentals and Applications will be a standard reference for all those researching and using polymer electrolytes in such areas as battery and fuel cell technology for automotive and other applications.
