New forms of energy production, storage and transport are one of the key scientific challenges in the 21st Century. Inorganic chemistry contributes to the development of new types of solar and fuel cells, batteries, and catalytic processes. This books covers topics including solar cells, fuel cells, hydrogen economy, oxygen alternatives, batteries, fuels for fuel cells, high-energy liquids or solids which can easily be stored and transported and will be able to replace oil. This volume assembles key researchers with a view on the latest developments.
