Reversible electrochemical systems with a solid polymeric electrolyte

State-of-the-art development of the reversible electrochemical systems with proton-exchange membrane for cyclic direct and reverse transformation of electric energy to the chemical ones is considered in this review. Concept of reversible cells and areas of theirs application are described. Possible schemes of organization of the reversible systems operation, and catalytic, electrode and membrane materials used in them are analyzed.
