Spectroelectrochemistry: Rsc

Overview

Electrochemistry affects several relevant research subjects of physics, chemistry and biology such as the transformation of materials, the transfer of information (especially in living systems), or the conversion and storage of energy. In addition, electrochemical processes constitute a major class of chemical reactions both in the laboratory and on large industrial scales. While conventional analytical electrochemistry provides excellent methods to determine concentrations (e.g. in sensor technology), to yield ...

Overview

Electrochemistry affects several relevant research subjects of physics, chemistry and biology such as the transformation of materials, the transfer of information (especially in living systems), or the conversion and storage of energy. In addition, electrochemical processes constitute a major class of chemical reactions both in the laboratory and on large industrial scales. While conventional analytical electrochemistry provides excellent methods to determine concentrations (e.g. in sensor technology), to yield energy data in the form of redox potentials, and to elucidate formal reaction mechanisms via kinetic analysis, these techniques alone are often not immediately suitable to identify unknown species which are formed as intermediates or as products in a redox reaction. The combination of reaction-oriented electrochemistry with species-focussed spectroscopy in spectroelectrochemistry can solve this problem, and many research groups from various sub-fields of the chemical sciences have engaged in recent years in using and developing this combined methodology. Spectroelectrochemistry has therefore evolved as a powerful yet usually inexpensive technique which yields mechanistic (chemistry), energy-relevant (electro) as well as electronic structure information (spectro). The whole range of the electromagnetic spectrum can be employed from x-ray absorption to NMR spectroscopies. Relevant examples involving UV-VIS-NIR and IR absorption spectroscopy as well as electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) are presented in this book with the objective to illustrate the potential and the applications of this technique and to provide practical information. The breadth and variety of reactions and materials covered are complemented by the straightforward interpretation of results in the understanding of redox reactions. Spectroelectrochemistry is essential reading for experts and newcomers alike to acquaint themselves with this simple, inexpensive, yet powerful method and it will also appeal to scientists from all chemical sub-fields who have a basic understanding and experience in electrochemistry.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry
"...neverthless the book can be recommended for libraries of research institutions where basic spectroscopic tools are employed in these areas of chemistry."
JACS
"....Spectroelectrochemistry is a quality offing that will Interoduce the reader to the wide applicability of spectroelectrochemical methods. THe broad coverage and interdisciplinary nature of the topics, the mixture of introductory and more advanced material and the illustrative examples od spectroscopic tabular data should make this book useful to both novices and experienced researchers in the field."
