Ceramic Membranes: Microstructural Engineering of Hydroxyapatite Membranes to Enhance Proton Conductivity (Adv. Funct. Mater. 24/2009)
The inside cover image showns a side view of a hydroxyapatite membrane with aligned crystal domains synthesized as described by Liu et al. on page 3941. The microstructure of the membrane is engineered to promote proton transport through orientation of the proton conducting paths. These novel structures have significantly higher proton conductivity than traditional hydroxyapatite ceramics and may offer improved performance in intermediate temperature fuel cells.
