There is no doubt that the world needs a secure supply of clean energy for the future. Fuel cells qualify as the ideal delivery mechanism. They are electrochemical devices capable of directly converting any consumable fuel to electrical energy through a chemical reaction. The only by-products are heat, carbon dioxide and water, which are considered to be environmentally safe. Fuel cells are efficient, clean, safe and reliable. Fuel Cells: Principles and Applications provides a snapshot of the present status of this rapidly progressing field: the ongoing breakthroughs in research and development, the directions for the future, and the proactive work of several firms in commercially producing fuel cell systems The book is a comprehensive reference book, explaining concepts and their applications. The interdisciplinary approach that draws on and clarifies the most recent research trends, makes this book interesting to everyone who is concerned with energy demands and fuel cells.

B Viswanathan is a renowned scientist and a distinguished teacher. He has been with the Department of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, since 1970. His research spans areas such as heterogeneous catalysis, materials science, theoretical chemistry, energy, nanotechnology, and information science. He has published several research papers and books, and won awards and fellowships at the national and international levels. He is also the author of Chemical and Electrochemical Energy Systems (published by Universities Press India Limited), one of the unique books in the topic. 

M Aulice Scibioh is a Senior Research Associate at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, and is currently a Visiting Research Scientist at the Fuel Cell Research Center, Korea Institute of Science and Technology, Seoul.
