The research published in the latest issue of Nature Materials shows the importance of cooperative effects in the conduction process.
This improved understanding of the nature of ionic conduction will help lead to the development of new materials with even better properties.
The team behind this work has recently been awarded an EPSRC grant of £187,000 to continue their internationally leading work on the development of new fuel cell electrolyte materials.
Dr Peter Slater, Chair of the Materials Chemistry Group, comments: “This work shows how computer modelling techniques can provide a fascinating insight into what makes a good fuel cell material.”
