From the Back Cover

Electrocatalysis and what it means for the impending energy crisis—the essential guide

As supplies of oil, petroleum, and natural gas continue to dwindle and concerns over the environmental impact of these fuels increase, the search for clean and renewable energy has led to renewed interest in catalysis in electrochemistry.

A thoroughly up-to-date, comprehensive reference work on electrocatalysis, Catalysis in Electrochemistry: From Fundamental Aspects to Strategies for Fuel Cell Development is an in-depth study of the principles, methods, strategies, and applications of this concept—popular since the 1950s—and its promising technological applications.

The book presents the most recent strategies for the design, preparation, and characterization of electrocatalytic materials, the role of electronic properties, and the structures, dynamics, and stability of different materials. Single crystals, bimetallic surfaces, oxides, supported and dispersed nanocatalysts, polyelectrolyte membranes, and many other relevant topics are also examined. The book's methodology touches on a broad spectrum of theoretical and computational methods, from Green's Functions and quantum models to modern characterization techniques, like FTIR and Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy.

Providing an overview of the key fundamental and applied aspects of electrocatalysis and the very real solutions it offers to contemporary energy problems, Catalysis in Electrochemistry is an invaluable resource for scientists working in academia, industry, and government institutions, alike.
