Novel anode materials for solid oxide fuel cells

S.W. Tao, P.I. Cowin and R. Lan,     University of Strathclyde, UK


This chapter aims to chart the development of novel anode materials for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), mainly perovskite oxides. The requirements of efficient anode materials are also discussed alongside the trade-off between certain requirements. We conclude with a short discussion of the current state in the development of SOFC anode materials and the outlook for future development.
