Hello there,

I do modeling of SOFCs and Lithium batteries and I am trying to get into the microbial fuel cells field. My specialties are numerical simulation of PDEs via Finite Element Methods and optimization.

I was wondering if anyone could suggest a few significant papers where I could start learning about MFC modeling. Also, what are the most significant/high impact journals in the field.

Kind Regards

Building a Two-Chamber Microbial Fuel Cell (after a tutorial presented by The Logan Group)

This webpage aims to help someone to build a microbial fuel cell (MFC) using relatively inexpensive and readily available materials. The method is based on the microbial fuel cells built by Abbie Groff, a student at Conestoga Valley High School in Lancaster, PA. The research she performed with her MFCs helped her win the Grand Champion Award at the 2005 Lancaster County Science Fair. More information about her research can be found on her website.
