The new edition of the cornerstone text on electrochemistry Electrochemistry represents a dynamic field with many applications in today's industrial economy: batteries and fuel cells; production and refining of metals and chemicals; fabricating of electronic materials and devices; operation of sensors; and understanding nerve action and drug delivery. The understanding and design of electrochemical systems is both fascinating and challenging because of the simultaneous interplay of mass transport, fluid dynamics, charge transport, electrochemical kinetics, and thermal effects. The recognized standard of the field, Electrochemical Systems thoroughly covers a wide range of systems and topics in electrochemical engineering. Newly updated and expanded, the Third Edition of this cornerstone text features: Rigorous and complete presentation of the fundamental concepts In-depth examples applying the concepts to real-life design problems Homework problems ranging from the reinforcing to the highly thought-provoking Extensive bibliography giving both the historical development of the field and references for the practicing electrochemist Suitable for serious study and application, the material presented spans all the major areas of electrochemistry, from the basics of thermodynamics and electrode kinetics to transport phenomena in electrolytes, metals, and semiconductors. Revisions and additions in this Third Edition cover important new treatments, ideas, and technologies while also increasing the book's accessibility for readers in related fields. Electrochemical Systems, Third Edition offers researchers, developers, and advanced students an essential update of this benchmark reference.Newman, John is the author of 'Electrochemical Systems', published 2004 under ISBN 9780471477563 and ISBN 0471477567.
