Description

The study of electrochemistry is pertinent to a wide variety of fields, including bioenergetics, environmental sciences, and engineering sciences. In addition, electrochemistry plays a fundamental role in specific applications as diverse as the conversion and storage of energy and the sequencing of DNA.

Intended both as a basic course for undergraduate students and as a reference work for graduates and researchers, Analytical and Physical Electrochemistry covers two fundamental aspects of electrochemistry: electrochemistry in solution and interfacial electrochemistry. By bringing these two subjects together into a single volume, the author clearly establishes the links between the physical foundation and the analytical applications of electrochemistry.

The philosophy of Analytical and Physical Electrochemistry has been to publish all the mathematical derivations in detail, allowing you, if you so desire, to follow the calculations that lead to the main results. With this rigorous approach, the author has provided a book of reference constructed from first principles. In this respect, the nomenclature and standards of the IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) are observed.

Reviews

"By and large, the book is an impressive monograph, which will find use in laboratories as a valuable source of information on assorted electroanalytical methods."

-Dr. Yu V. Pleskov, Elektrokhimiya/Russian Journal of Electrochemistry, 2006

"… [A]n innovative textbook … [T]his new edition gathers the physical bases of electroanalytical techniques, including electrophoretic methods, in a single volume. The strength of the book is its excellent illustrative presentation, which includes 272 figures and schematic diagrams. … This book covers both fundamental and current aspects of analytical and physical electrochemistry. It is suitable for use in a basic undergraduate course and as an advanced reference for graduate students, researchers, and electrochemical engineers. This book should serve as a popular reference for both the English and French communities of electrochemistry."

- Analytical Chemistry

"This text book is a welcome addition in an area of chemistry in which good text books are difficult to find. The author fulfills the promise of the title in 10 well organized chapters…an excellent textbook."

-ChemPhysChem, Prof. W. Ronald Fawcett, Department of Chemistry, University of California, Davis, USA, 2006

"For anyone working in electrochemistry, this is a useful book. It should be a marvelous resource for teaching… .For graduate students, perhaps puzzled by equations that seem to be taken for granted in research publications, this book can clarify and teach their origin."

-Trends in Analytical Chemistry, Vol. 24, No. 8, 2005

"The strength of the book is its treatment of such a broad range of topics, from fundamentals through to experimental methods."
