Description

Praise for the Fourth Edition

"Outstanding praise for previous editions….the single best general reference for the organic chemist."

Journal of the Electrochemical Society

"The cast of editors and authors is excellent, the text is, in general, easily readable and understandable, well documented, and well indexed…those who purchase the book will be satisfied with their acquisition."

Journal of Polymer Science

"…an excellent starting point for anyone wishing to explore the application of electrochemical technique to organic chemistry and…a comprehensive up-to-date review for researchers in the field."

Journal of the American Chemical Society

Highlights from the Fifth Edition:

  • Coverage of the electrochemistry of buckminsterfullerene and related compounds, electroenzymatic synthesis, conducting polymers, and electrochemical fluorination
  • Systematic examination of electrochemical transformations of organic compounds, organized according to the type of starting materials
  • In-depth discussions of carbonyl compounds, anodic oxidation of oxygen-containing compounds, electrosynthesis of bioactive materials, and electrolyte reductive coupling
  • Features 16 entirely new chapters, with contributions from several new authors who also contribute to extensive revisions throughout the rest of the chapters

Completely revised and updated, Organic Electrochemistry, Fifth Edition explains distinguishing fundamental characteristics that separate organic electrochemistry from classical organic chemistry. It includes descriptions of the most important variants of electron transfers and emphasizes the importance of electron transfers in initiating various electrochemical reactions. The sweeping changes and lengthy additions in the fifth edition testify to the field’s continued and rapid growth in research, practice, and application, and make it a valuable addition to your collection.

Reviews

"Everything you always wanted to know about organic electrochemistry but were too afraid to ask is in this book. If you have not found what you are looking for, it is almost certain that you have not looked properly and that you should try again. This is now the fifth edition of Organic Electrochemistry in forty odd years and it maintains the same high standard as its predecessors… the present edition was carefully nurtured by a blend of old timers and newcomers of editors and authors. The result is a fifth edition which bears many resemblances to its predecessors but at the same time a significant number of changes and updates have been introduced to the readership. This approach will attract new readers and be a comfort to scientists accustomed to the standard set by the previous editions.

Organic Electrochemistry, Fifth edition will prove to be a vital aid for anyone wishing to undertake an Odyssey through the field of organic electrochemistry."

Praise for the Third Edition

"For nearly 20 years now, 'Baizer and Lund' has had the status of a proven and highly regarded standard work…. This revised and enlarged third edition takes account of the rapid developments occurring in the field…clear and comprehensible. The editors have succeeded in an exemplary way in welding together the individual contributions to make a consistent whole…it impresses through expert and skillful choice of material, and the wealth of helpful advice that is offered…recommended without hesitation…'Lund and Baizer' is certain to be appreciated as a valuable guide and a mine of information that one cannot afford to be without…a must for every library."

Angewandte Chemie

"This book is definitely an inevitable one for research laboratory libraries and a 'bible' for those who serve in this field…a valuable addition for college and university libraries."

Bulletin of Electrochemistry

"…a gateway to the literature and a source of ideas…thorough and authoritative…this revised version of Organic Electrochemistry will remain the standard reference book for all those in the field. It will also be welcome and valued reading for all who become drawn to the study of the electrode reactions of organic molecules for the first time."

Chemistry & Industry

"…an excellent reference…. The editors should be congratulated on a job well done. The authors are first rate and experts in their field. The book is recommended to all interested in the fields of organic as well as electrochemistry."

Journal of Liquid Chromatography

"(…) the book is extremely easy to read and provides an in-depth introduction to the most important aspects in organic electrochemistry. I highly recommend this book to all electrochemists and researchers starting their studies in the field of organic electrochemistry. It will also be extremely useful for scientists already working in the field and looking for specific information." - Neus Vilà, Laboratoire de Chimie Physique et Microbiologie pour l’Environnement, UMR 7564, CNRS-Université de Lorraine
