To ensure a viable technology, materials that are highly efficient in this conversion process yet less costly must be developed. The hydrogen fuel cell is another very attractive and feasible energy-conversion technology that has the advantage of being nonpolluting. It is just beginning to be implemented in batteries for electronic devices and holds promise as a power plant for automobiles. New materials still need to be developed for more efficient fuel cells and also for better catalysts to be used in the production of hydrogen.

A. 3 Why Study Materials Science and Engineering? • 5 Finally, probably the overriding consideration is that of economics: What will the finished product cost? A material may be found that has the ideal set of properties but is prohibitively expensive. Here again, some compromise is inevitable. The cost of a finished piece also includes any expense incurred during fabrication to produce the desired shape. The more familiar an engineer or scientist is with the various characteristics and structure–property relationships, as well as the processing techniques of materials, the more proficient and confident he or she will be in making judicious materials choices based on these criteria.
