About the book

A biofuel cell is an electrochemical device, harvesting electricity from chemicals and biochemicals such as glucose and other biomolecules, available in biosystems or even wastes. The development of fabrication systems and advanced materials, such as electrocatalysts, functionalized electrodes, and membranes, is a key to maximize energy-conversion performances. Moreover, many considerations should be kept in mind when applying biofuel cells for applications. This book aims to include a comprehensive collection of chapters, describing the fundamental knowledge, applications, and further perspectives of electrochemical biofuel cell technology.

This book aims also to discuss current debates in scientific communities pertaining to the fundamentals of BFC-based energy devices, material developments, and obstacles in real applications. Highlights on advanced approaches, fabrications, and characterizations of electrochemical BFCs also aim to be collected. In addition to energy applications, examples of emerging applications are self-powered biosensors and bioelectronics.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
