About this book

Showcasing recent developments in inorganic materials in an area of societal interest and importance, this book provides an up-to-date introduction to the contemporary use of functional solids in emerging technologies. Energy Storage and Conversion Materials describes the application of inorganic materials in the storage and conversion of energy, with an emphasis on how solid-state chemistry allows development of new functional solids for energy applications. Dedicated chapters cover co-electrolysis, low temperature fuel cells, oxide thermoelectric devices for energy conversion, solid-state Li batteries and thermochemical energy conversion. Edited and written by world-renowned scientists, this book will provide a comprehensive introduction for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers wishing to learn about the topic.

Author information

Prof. Stephen Skinner has research interests in the area of materials for new energy technologies and is primarily concerned with the chemical and physical properties of solid oxide electrochemical cells, including fuel cells, electrolysers, sensors and permeation membranes. He has extensive experience of the use of in-situ neutron and synchrotron facilities to undertake high temperature characterisation of new materials, and in relating those data to electrochemical properties of cell components. He is a Fellow of The Royal Society of Chemistry, Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining and also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Stephen is a member of The Electrochemical Society, Materials Research Society and the American Ceramic Society. He is a Chartered Chemist and Chartered Scientist. Stephen also leads the Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Characterisation of Materials at Imperial College London.
