This text adopts an unique classification of electrochemical processes and introduces the subject in a stepwise fashion, from simple solution electrochemistry to photo-electrochemistry. The reader can thus obtain a comprehensive view of the recent trends in electrochemistry without serious difficulty.
The third volume of 'Frontiers of Electrochemistry' concentrates on materials science. It provides a review of recent progress in the study of the electrochemical properties of novel materials and describes advances in the development of electrode materials for photoelectrochemistry, polymeric materials and insertion compounds for Lithium batteries. The book provides a careful description of electrochemistry of carbon, thin polymer film coated electrodes, electrocatalytic metal-oxide electrodes, electrochemistry of nuclear fuels and electrochemistry of clays and zeolites. The selection of excellent review articles was written by the best experts in their field of research. The book will interest electrochemists, materials scientists, electrochemical engineers, and other scientists in academic and industrial settings. In the preface, the editors point out that each chapter provides sufficient background material so that it can be read and appreciate by specialists and non specialists alike
This volume concentrates on materials science. The materials covered include: new materials for Li batteries, new electronically conducting polymers, new materials for photoelectrodes, new materials for lithium battery cathodes, and new ionic and polymeric electrolytes.
Leading scientists provide a modern description of the metal-solution interface and describe the numerous advances made in interfacial electrochemistry during the past decade. Contributing authors summarize the impact of new ex situ and in situ techniques in studying electrode surfaces, and illustrate the significance of the developments of new experimental techniques and the availability of reliable data for the progress in the theory of electrified interfaces. The carefully selected review articles demonstrate how a molecular picture of the interface has emerged from traditional models that treated the solution as a dielectric and metals as an electronic continuum. This latest volume in the series leads the reader into the world of modern techniques, which probe the properties of atoms and the molecules at surfaces of metal electrodes. It will be of interest to graduate students and scientists, chemists and physicists interested in surface science and electrochemistry.

Pushing the frontiers of electrochemistry-a survey of new surface imaging techniques. This latest installment in the Frontiers of Electrochemistry series helps readers gain insight into one of the hottest areas of modern electrochemistry. Tracing recent advances in the imaging of electrified surfaces, this volume describes cutting-edge techniques that allow us to record real-time and real-space images with atomic resolution, observe structures of surfaces and interfaces directly on a display, study the distribution of atoms and molecules during a surface reaction, and much more. Leading international authorities discuss surface imaging techniques used in technologies involving electrocrystallization and electrodeposition of metals-employing numerous examples to demonstrate site specificity of electrode processes, and discussing applications to electronic materials such as the capacity to print nanopatterns at electrode surfaces. They cover techniques that advance our understanding of the properties of organic films and surfaces and interfaces, including scanning electron microscopy and microprobes and atomic force microscopy. Finally, they review the theory of electron tunneling at the metal/solution interface, helping readers interpret images of electrode surfaces obtained by scanning tunneling microscopy. Designed to meet the needs of specialists and nonspecialists alike, Imaging of Surfaces and Interfaces provides plenty of background material along with eight color plates. It is an important resource for scientists involved in electrochemistry, surface science, materials science, and electrodeposition technologies.
Inorganic Bioelectrochemistry provides a thorough overview of the state of the art in this crucial area of research. In addition, the book helps readers understand where the field is heading and what new developments are on the horizon. Eight chapters written by leading international experts cover crucial topics such as electron and proton transfer in metalloprotein systems, electrochemistry and electrocatalysis of redox enzymes, and electrochemistry of DNA-based molecules.
This ninth volume in the series concentrates on in situ spectroscopic methods and combines a balanced mixture of theory and applications, making it highly readable for chemists and physicists, as well as for materials scientists and engineers. As with the previous volumes, all the chapters continue the high standards of this series, containing numerous references to further reading and the original literature, for easy access to this new field. The editors have succeeded in selecting highly topical areas of research and in presenting authors who are leaders in their fields, covering such diverse topics as diffraction studies of the electrode-solution interface, thin organic films at electrode surfaces, linear and non-linear spectroscopy as well as sum frequency generation studies of the electrified solid-solution interface, plus quantitative SNIFTIRS and PM-IRRAS. Special attention is paid to recent advances and developments, which are critically and thoroughly discussed. The result is a compelling set of reviews, serving equally well as an excellent and up-to-date source of information for experienced researchers in the field, as well as as an introduction for newcomers.
The papers included in this issue of ECS Transactions were originally presented in the symposium ¿New Frontiers of Synthetic and Mechanistic Organic Electrochemistry¿, held during the PRiME 2008 joint international meeting of The Electrochemical Society and The Electrochemical Society of Japan, with the technical cosponsorship of the Japan Society of Applied Physics, the Korean Electrochemical Society, the Electrochemistry Division of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, and the Chinese Society of Electrochemistry. This meeting was held in Honolulu, Hawaii, from October 12 to 17, 2008.
