From the Back Cover
Batteries, fuel cells, corrosion and electricity - with the adventof materials science and nanotechnology, electrochemistry is moreimportant than ever. It is also becoming increasinglyinterdisciplinary, such that electrochemistry is a must for allchemistry students in their courses and for laboratory courses inphysical chemistry.
This second, completely updated edition of a classic textbookprovides a concise introduction to modern electrochemistry, fromthe physical-chemical fundamentals right up to technicalapplications, with an emphasis on energy technology. The renownedand experienced textbook authors present the material in adidactically skilful and lucid manner, backed by numerousinformative illustrations and tables.
The scope of this book covers such modern methods of investigationas spectroelectrochemistry and mass spectrometry, electrochemicalanalysis and production methods, as well as fuel cells and micro-and nanotechnology.
The result is required reading for those majoring in chemistry, aswell as those studying chemical engineering, materials science andphysics.
