Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The new edition of this classic text offers a comprehensive and accessible introduction to electrochemistry. It assumes a background in chemical thermodynamics and kinetics at the level of a standard undergraduate physical chemistry course, and it is intended for use as a text for a first course in electrochemistry or as a self-study book for chemists and scientists in related fields. The clear and concise text is rich with examples from the literature illustrating theory and electrochemical applications in analytical, organic, inorganic, and organometallic chemistry. Exercises at the end of each chapter extend and amplify this approach. The book contains extensive references to books and monographs, review literature, contemporary examples of electrochemical applications and historically important papers. Extensive discussion of voltammetric methods includes chronoamperometry, chronopotentiometry, cyclic voltammetry and steady-state voltammetric methods. Two chapters are devoted to organic, inorganic and organometallic reactions initiated by oxidation or reduction with electroanalytical methods. Many technological applications of thermodynamics are examined, including batteries and fuel cells, corrosion, electroplating and other metal finishing techniques, reduction of ores and purification of metals, and electrochemical production of inorganic and organic chemicals. Many sections in the new edition have been reworked to improve their clarity and accuracy, and new material has been added on microelectrodes, cyclic voltammetry and organic electrosynthesis. The chapter on the mechanisms of electrode processes now incorporates applications of microelectrode methods and emphasizes the strenths and limitations of various other voltammetric techniques.
