Background: Nanocomposites (integrating the nano and composite technologies) for advanced
fuel cells (NANOCOFC) demonstrate the great potential to reduce the operational temperature of
solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) significantly in the low temperature (LT) range 300-600ºC. NANOCOFC
has offered the development of multi-functional materials composed of semiconductor and ionic materials
to meet the requirements of low temperature solid oxide fuel cell (LTSOFC) and green energy
conversion devices with their unique mechanisms.
Description: This work reviews the recent developments relevant to the devices and the patents in
LTSOFCs from nanotechnology perspectives that reports advances including fabrication methods, material
compositions, characterization techniques and cell performances.
Conclusion: Finally, the future scope of LTSOFC with nanotechnology and the practical applications
are also discussed.
