Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...definitely worth consulting as a reference source." (Journalof the American Chemical Society, Vol. 125, No. 22, 2003)
From The Critics
Volume 6 is the first volume to be published of a projected ten-volume reference, which will make its appearance over a 30-month period; the 11th volume will be a comprehensive index (individual volumes also have their own indexes). Having permeated the disciplines of analytical, physical, organic, and inorganic chemistry and biochemistry, the field of electrochemistry merits its own thorough reference, for scientists in the field as well as students and others needing knowledge of electrochemistry for related sciences. Launching the set, Volume 6 contains 20 contributed chapters on the fundamentals of semiconductor electrochemistry and photoelectrochemistry, experimental techniques, semiconductor nanostructure, solar energy conversion without dye sensitization, dye-sensitized photoelectrochemistry, and nonsolar energy applications. Volume editor Licht, currently with Technion Israel Institute of Science, is an electrochemist with a principal focus on clean, renewable energy solutions (go, Licht!). The encyclopdia's overseeing editors are A.J. Bard (U. of Texas, and recipient of the 2002 Priestley Medal from the American Chemical Society), and M. Stratmann (Max-Planck Institute). Annotation c.

Meet the Author

Series Editors:
Prof. Allen J. Bard: Born December 18, 1933, Prof. Bard receivedhis early education in the public schools of New York City andattended The City College of NY (B.Sc.,1955). He did his graduatework at Harvard Univ. with J.J. Lingane (MA, 1956; PhD, 1958) inelectroanalytical chemistry. In 1958 he joined the faculty of TheUniv.of Texas at Austin where he currently holds the NormanHackerman/Welch Regents' Chair in Chemistry. His research interestshave been in the application of electrochemical methods to thestudy of chemical problems and include investigations inelectro-organic chemistry, photoelectrochemistry, electrogeneratedchemiluminescence, and electroanalytical chemistry. He haspublished three books (Electrochemical Methods, with LarryFaulkner, Integrated Chemical Systems, and Chemical Equilibrium)and over 600 papers and chapters while editing the seriesElectroanalytical Chemistry (21 volumes) and the Encyclopedia ofthe Electrochemistry of the Elements (16 volumes) plus co-editingthe monograph, Standard Potentials in Aqueous Solution. He iscurrently editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Chem.Society. The ISI listing of the "50 most cited chemists from1981-1997" ranks Prof. Bard at number 13 (taken from a total of627,871 chemists surveyed).
Prof. Martin Stratmann: Born 20 April 1954, studied chemistry atthe Ruhr Univ.Bochum and received his diploma in 1980. He finishedhis PhD in 1982 at the Max Planck Inst.(MPI) fürEisenforschung in Düsseldorf. His professorship in physicalchemistry followed in 1992 at the Univ.of Düsseldorf withelectrochemical studies on metal surfaces covered with ultrathinelectrolyte layers. In 1994 he took over the Chair in CorrosionSci.and Surface Engin.at the Univ.of Erlangen and since 2000 hasbeen a scientific member of the MPI and director at the MPIfür Eisenforschung Düsseldorf, heading a department ofinterface chemistry and surface engineering. His research interestsconcentrate on corrosion related electrochemistry, in particularwith emphasis on microscopic aspects and in-situ spectroscopy,electrochemistry at buried metal/polymer interfaces - an area wherehe pioneered novel electrochemical techniques - atmosphericcorrosion, adhesion and surface chemistry of reactive metalsubstrates. He has published more than 150 papers and is co-editorof Steel Research and Materials and Corrosion.
