Solid State Electrochemistry II: Electrodes, Interfaces and Ceramic Membranesby Vladislav V. Kharton
Synopses & Reviews
The one-stop reference source for fundamentals, advances and intriguing problems in solid-state electrochemistry. This important and rapidly developing scientific field integrates many aspects of conventional electrochemical science and engineering, materials science, solid-state chemistry and physics, heterogeneous catalysis and other areas of physical chemistry. The range of practical applications includes many types of batteries, fuel cells, electrochemical pumps and compressors, solid state electrolyzers and electrocatalytic reactors, synthesis of new materials with improved properties and corrosion protection, supercapacitors, accumulators, sensors, electrochromic and memory devices.
The second volume contains brief reviews dealing with the ionic memory and fuel cell technologies, ceramic membranes and composites, nanostructured ionic and mixed conductors, novel electrode materials for a variety of solid-state electrochemical cells, selected theoretical aspects, and numerous factors related to interfacial and surface processes, stability and reliability of the electrochemical appliances. As for the previous volume "Fundamentals, Materials and their Applications", particular emphasis is centered on the general methodological aspects, reference information and recent advances. Due to the highly interdisciplinary nature of the topic, this handbook is of great interest to industrial and academic researchers, engineers and postgraduate students specializing in all related areas of science and technology.
Book News Annotation:

The one-stop reference source for fundamentals, advances and intriguing problems in solid-state electrochemistry. This important and rapidly developing scientific field integrates many aspects of conventional electrochemical science and engineering, materials science, solid-state chemistry and physics, heterogeneous catalysis and other areas of physical chemistry. It has already found practical applications in many types of batteries, fuel cells, electrochemical pumps and compressors, gas separation membranes, solid-state electrolyzers, electrocatalytic reactors, super-capacitors, electrochromic and memory devices, various sensors, corrosion protection, and in the synthesis of new materials with improved properties.
Combining fundamental information with an overview of the role of ceramic membranes, electrodes and interfaces in solid state electrochemistry, particular attention is focused on the most important developments over the last decade, as well as the methodological and theoretical aspects, together with practical applications.
Due to the highly interdisciplinary nature of the topic, this comprehensive handbook is of great interest to industrial and academic researchers, engineers and postgraduate students specializing in all related areas of science and technology.
The ideal addition to the companion volume on fundamentals, methodologies, and applications, and also available as a two-volume set.
The ideal addition to the companion volume on fundamentals, methodologies, and applications, this second volume combines fundamental information with an overview of the role of ceramic membranes, electrodes and interfaces in this important, interdisciplinary and rapidly developing field.
Written primarily for specialists working in solid state electrochemistry, this first comprehensive handbook on the topic focuses on the most important developments over the last decade, as well as the methodological and theoretical aspects and practical applications. This makes the contents equally of interest to material, physical and industrial scientists, and to physicists.
Also available as a two-volume set.
