Introduction to Hydrogen Techlogy explains the basic chemistry that underlies promising, invative new techlogies such as hydrogen fuel cells. Incorporating information on the latest developments and current research on alternative energy sources, this book:* Covers chemistry fundamentals relating to hydrogen techlogy, including reversible reactions and chemical equilibrium, acid-base chemistry, thermodynamics, reaction kinetics, electrochemistry, organic reactions involving hydrogen, polymer chemistry, photochemistry, and plasma chemistry* Discusses various types of hydrogen fuel cells and diverse fuel cell applications* Addresses the production techniques and the infrastructure necessary to support hydrogen-based energy sources This is a hands-on resource for scientists and researchers working with hydrogen-based techlogies and an excellent reference for students in engineering, science, environmental science, and applied science and techlogy. This book also will be useful for the general public interested in sustainable energy.
The authors of this book are members of the Rochester Institute of Technology Renewable Energy Enterprise (RITree). It is their hope that this book will spur new developments in hydrogen-based energy sources for today's world - and tomorrow's. ROMAN J.
