"This book is clearly up to date and represents a considerable amount of work by the authors, who all appear well qualified to write their respective chapters. The subject area of each chapter would merit an entire book in that field alone, but ... the value here is in linking the subject areas together so that the reader can benefit from having them all in one book. ... The editor has done a good job of pulling together so many topics and presenting them as a coherent whole. I would definitely recommend this book for readers who are either experienced or new in this exciting field."

"... gives a comprehensive description of the science and technology of various types of polymer electrolyte membranes (PEMs) and their application in electrochemical technologies. The PEM material selection, synthesis, and characterization as well as the fundamental understanding of membrane processes and their associated performance are emphasized. The authors of all chapters in this book have both strong academic and industrial expertise, and provide fundamentals as well as up-to-date technical knowledge and information, challenges, and future directions, making the book attractive to ... researchers, engineers, and professors/students who are working in the area of electrochemistry-related PEMs."
