Book Description

This new edition of Introduction to Electrochemical Science and Engineering updates nearly every chapter, expanding coverage of solild-state electrochemistry, hydrogen and fuel cells, energy storage, and electrochemical techniques. It includes many case studies related to novel electrochemical energy conversion systems and phenomena such as batteries, flow cells, fuel cells, electrolyzers, supercapacitors, photoelectrochemical systems, bioelectrochemical systems, corrosion in high temperature/pressure brines, new pH, and reference electrodes. It includes about 360 conceptual and numerical problems and their detailed solutions.

  • Ensures a fundamental knowledge of the core concepts of electrochemical science and engineering, such as electrochemical cells, electrolytic conductivity, electrode potential, and current-potential relations related to a variety of electrochemical systems
  • Develops the initial skills needed to understand an electrochemical experiment and successfully evaluate experimental data without visiting a laboratory

  • Promotes an appreciation of the capabilities and applications of key electrochemical techniques
  • Features eight lab descriptions and instructions, which can be used to develop the labs by instructors in an electrochemical engineering class.
  • Integrates nine videos with lab demonstrations available online to advise instructors and students on how the labs can be carried out
  • Now features a solutions manual for instructors

Introduction to Electrochemical Science and Engineering, Second Edition is an ideal textbook for undergraduate engineering and science students and those readers in need of introductory-level content. Furthermore, experienced readers will find this book useful for solidifying their electrochemical background.
