About this Book
The definitive work in electrochemistry
Providing an up-to-date source for engineers and scientists, the Encyclopedia of Electrochemistry is unrivalled in its breadth and depth, covering everything from fundamental research to areas of application. Extensive cross-linking allows users to deepen their knowledge as much as needed.
Electrochemical processes play an increasingly large role in our daily lives; whether in producing or saving energy, rust protection or nerve stimuli in our bodies. Thus it is hardly surprising that the specialist area of electrochemistry is a traditional yet very lively area of research.
The Encyclopedia of Electrochemistry spans all electrochemical areas:
Fundamentals in electrochemistry
Corrosion and oxide films
Semiconductor electrodes / Electrodes and modified electrodes
Inorganic and organic electrochemistry/ Bioelectrochemistry.
The articles are intended not only for electrochemists, but also for those in other fields who use electrochemistry and are in need of a reference to improve their expertise:
In this respect, the Encyclopedia of Electrochemistry facilitates the broad use of electrochemistry in research and industry, while also providing a basis for further progress in this highly interesting and fast moving area of science.
Outstanding articles to name but few:
Electrocatalysis on Surfaces Modified by Metal Monolayers Deposited at Underpotentials written by Radoslav Adzic (Fellow of the Electrochemical Society).
CO, Formic Acid, and Methanol Oxidation in Acid Electrolytes – Mechanisms and Electrocatalysis from Wolf Vielstich, well-known for his many contributions to electrochemistry.
Stripping Analysis contributed by Joseph Wang, the recipient of the Cole Parmer Award 2006.
Anodic and Cathodic Protection composed by U. Kamachi Mudali, H.S. Khatak and Baldev Raj, who is recipient of numerous awards (a.o.TWAS Award , Nayudamma Memorial Award).
