Fundamentals of Electrochemistry
Fundamentals of Electrochemistry provides the basic outline of mosttopics of theoretical and applied electrochemistry for students notyet familiar with this field, as well as an outline of recent andadvanced developments in electrochemistry for people who arealready dealing with electrochemical problems.
The content of this edition is arranged so that all basicinformation is contained in the first part of the book, which isnow rewritten and simplified in order to make it more accessibleand used as a textbook for undergraduate students. More advancedtopics, of interest for postgraduate levels, come in the subsequentparts.
This updated second edition focuses on experimental techniques,including a comprehensive chapter on physical methods for theinvestigation of electrode surfaces. New chapters deal with recenttrends in electrochemistry, including nano- andmicro-electrochemistry, solid-state electrochemistry, andelectrocatalysis. In addition, the authors take into account theworldwide renewal of interest for the problem of fuel cells andinclude chapters on batteries, fuel cells, and double layercapacitors.

Pagina xviii - Of all electrical phenomena, electrolysis appears the most likely to furnish us with a real insight into the true nature of the electrical current, because we find currents of ordinary matter and currents of electricity forming part of the same phenomenon...
