Overview

The new edition of the cornerstone text on electrochemistry

Spans  all the areas of electrochemistry, from the basics of thermodynamics and electrode kinetics to transport phenomena in electrolytes, metals, and semiconductors. Newly updated and expanded, the Third Edition covers important new treatments, ideas, and technologies while also increasing the book's accessibility for readers in related fields.

  • 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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a solid, well-rounded discussion of the principal aspects of electrochemistry and is well suited for use as a graduate-level textbook. Also, it will make a valuable personal library addition for the corrosion professional..." (Corrosion, December 2005)

"Newman obviously has extensive experience in electrochemistry, as evidenced by his sophisticated treatment of the subject in this volume." (Journal of Metals Online, March 8, 2005)

"…it will be a useful to anyone involved in the practice of electrochemistry…highly recommended." (CHOICE, November 2004)
