This volume details the basic principles of interfacial electrochemistry and heterogenous electron transfer processes. It presents topics of current interest in electrochemistry, considering the application of electrochemical techniques in a variety of disciplines, and nonelectrochemical methodologies in electrochemistry.;The work is intended for: electrochemists; analytical, physical, industrial and organic chemists; surface and materials scientists; materials and chemical engineers; physicists; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
