About this Reference Work

While electrochemistry deals with the interrelation of electrical and chemical phenomena, applied electrochemistry is the interface between fundamental science and practical applications. It is vitally important for our industrial society of today and even more so for its future. A successful response to global challenges such as securing energy supply, developing energy-efficient and sustainable processes and materials, environmentally friendly technologies, or monitoring physiological processes for health care requires electrochemical research and engineering. The Encyclopedia of Applied Electrochemistry provides an authoritative compilation of entries dealing with all applied aspects of electrochemistry, including basic theoretical concepts, and instrumentation. As a unique, one-stop resource for sound and digested knowledge in this field, the Encyclopedia of Applied Electrochemistry comprises the first applications-oriented interdisciplinary work on the critical technologies underlying key advances such as energy efficiency (e.g. batteries for electric cars, etc.), green and sustainable chemical industries, new materials (corrosion resistant and low-friction), and biomedical sensors.

About the authors

Robert F. Savinell is the George S. Dively Professor of Chemical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University, where he also served as Department Chairman for several years. He has worked with many scientific journals in electrochemistry, and in the past served as North American Editor of the Journal of Applied Electrochemistry. Gerhard Kreysa was appointed Professor at the Chemical Engineering Department of the University of Dortmund in 1985. From 1985 to 1995 he served as Executive Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Applied Electrochemistry. He was a recipient of the Chemviron Award in 1980, the Max-Buchner-Research-Award of DECHEMA and the Castner Medal of the Society of Chemical Industry in 1994, the Wilhelm Ostwald Medal of the Saxon Academy of Sciences in Leipzig in 2006. From 1992 to 2009 he served as Chief Executive of DECHEMA Society of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology in Frankffurt am Main, Germany. Ken-ichiro Ota is in the Chemical Engineering Department at Yohohama University, and is the President of the Electrochemical Society of Japan.

Reviews

“The Encyclopedia of Applied Electrochemistry fulfills its intension to be an authoritative compilation of entries dealing with all applied aspects of electrochemistry, including basic theoretical concepts, and instrumentation. It provides a comprehensive collection of topic related facts, and so it is a good reference book for all readers interested in applied electrochemistry. … It can be recommended to everyone dealing with these topics.” (Ralph Bäßler, Materials and Corrosion, Vol. 66 (10), 2015)
