This book is based on the George Fisher Baker Lecture given by Jean-Michel Savéant at Cornell University in Fall 2002.

• The first book focusing on molecular electrochemistry

• Relates to other fields, including photochemistry and biochemistry

• Outlines clearly the connection between concepts, experimental illustrations, proofs and supporting methods

• Appendixes to provide rigorous demonstrations to prevent an overload of algebra in the main text

• Applications-oriented, focused on analyzing the results obtained rather than the methodology
