Description:

The book addresses the scientific principles underlying electrochemistry. Starting with the basic concepts of electricity, the early chapters discuss the physics and chemistry of the materials from which electrochemical cells are constructed and the properties that make these materials appropriate as cell components. Much of the importance of electrochemistry lies in the conversion of electrical energy into chemical energy and vice versa; the thermodynamics of these processes is described, in the context of a wide range of applications of these interconversions. An electrode is a surface at which an ionic conductor meets an electronic conductor and the book describes a wide variety of such…
