About this book


No. 44

Edited by Mordechay Schlesinger

University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario, Canada

Topics in Number 44 include:

  • The basic mathematical models which arise in some electrochemical processes in regards to galvanic corrosion phenomena
  • Near field transducers and their related applications to nano-chemistry and electrochemistry
  • How symmetry considerations play a major role in modern scientific computation
  • The methods used in the analysis of electrochemical systems, including computer simulations and quantum and statistical mechanics
  • The techniques used to investigate ionic and solvent transfer and transport in electroactive materials
  • Monte Carlo simulations of the underpotential deposition of metal layers on metallic substrates
  • The range of models applied to localized corrosion processes and a review of recent work on the modeling of pitting corrosion
  • Descriptions of the conceptual structure of Density-Functional Theory and its practical applications
  • Whether scanning acoustic microscopy can be applied to nano-scaled electrochemically deposited thin film systems
  • The processes and equations underlying the modeling of the current distribution in electrochemical cells

From reviews of previous volumes:

"This long-standing series continues its tradition of offering high quality reviews of established and emerging subject areas, together with the less common aspects of electrochemical science … Deserves a place in electrochemistry libraries and should prove useful to electrochemists and related workers."

-Chemistry and Industry

"Continues the valuable service that has been rendered by the Modern Aspects series."

- Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry

"Will definitely be of much use to researchers in the field of electrochemistry… The editors of this well-produced volume deserve all appreciation for maintaining the excellent standard of the series."

- Bulletin of Electrochemistry

"Extremely well-referenced and very readable … Maintains the overall high standards of the series."

- Journal of the American Chemical Society


From the reviews:

“The present book is divided into ten chapters and continues with the high standard, the first part (Modern Aspects of Electrochemistry 43 Modelling and Simulations) already set. … the present book ‘Modern Aspects of Electrochemistry 44 Modelling and Numerical Simulations II’ edited by Mordechay Schlesinger continues the high and valuable standard of the series. It is surely worth to become part of the library of researchers and interested professionals in the field of electrochemical modelling and its application on various problems.”­­­ (T. Eichler, Materials and Corrosion, Vol. 62 (9), 2011)
