Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...concise reference book, containing numerous and recent references on modern battery technology..." (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Vol. 19, No. 2, March/April 2003)
Booknews
Providing insight into the chemical as well as the electrochemical reactions and processes related with the discharging and charging of batteries, this handbook serves as a resource for researchers in the fields of materials for energy storage and conversion, as well as students of inorganic chemistry, polymer chemistry, or materials science at the graduate or higher level. Coverage is divided between aqueous electrolyte batteries and alkali metal batteries and further in anodes, cathodes, electrolytes, and separators. There are also three more general chapters about thermodynamics and mechanistics of electrode reactions, practical batteries, and the global competition of primary and secondary batteries.
