Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Anyone at any level wanting to get involved in electrochemical experimentation should benefit from access to this book." (CHOICE, October 2006)
Journal of Chemical Education
...this book shines as a self-consistent introduction to the techniques it claims to treat...fills an important niche in the library holdings of any institution of higher learning...those who...frequently deal with research involving the application of electroanalytical methods will likely find themselves reaching for it often.
SciTech Book News
Offers clear, reader-friendly explanations of fundamental principles of electrochemical processes as well as insight...
...useful for a novice hoping to learn whether electrochemistry might be helpful in a particular case...useful for upper-division...or graduate students contemplating electrochemical research...
Offers clear, reader-friendly explanations of fundamental principles of electrochemical processes as well as insight into the potential of electroanalysis for problem solving in a range of fields, from clinical diagnostics to environmental science. Examines aspects of electrode reactions, discusses high-resolution surface characterization, and overviews finite-current controlled-potential techniques. Describes electrochemical instrumentation and electrode materials, deals with principles of potentiometric measurements, and examines chemical sensors. Includes b&w photos of equipment. For advanced undergraduates and graduate students. This edition expands theoretical discussion and covers the latest advances in the field through 1999. Wang teaches chemistry at New Mexico State University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
