Electrochemistry for Chemists / Edition 2 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
A complete and practical guide to the basic principles ofelectrochemistry for the nonspecialistEmphasizing practical applications and real-world experimentation,Electrochemistry for Chemists gives chemists, biologists, andmaterial scientists a solid understanding of the basic principlesand modern methodology of electrochemistry. Incorporating the manynew applications of recent years, this thoroughly updated SecondEdition gives the nonelectrochemist access to a powerful tool forthe study and measurement of chemical systems. And, like thepopular first edition, the Second Edition is also a useful text forsenior undergraduate and graduate students, especially in organic,inorganic, and biological chemistry.* Offers a practical guide to the use of electrochemical methods inresearch and laboratory work* Provides examples of molecular characterization byelectrochemical methods in all subdivisions of chemistry, includingdioxygen species, base metals, and nonmetals* Includes numerous tables of electrochemical data, as well asphysical parameters for solvents, electrolytes, cells, andelectrodes* Incorporates the latest information on instrumentation, solvents,and reagents* Lists extensive references for further study of theoreticalissues
