About this book

The Electrochemical Dictionary provides up-to-date, broad and authoritative coverage of the specific terms most used in electrochemistry and its related fields, including relevant areas of physics and engineering. This modern compendium will be an indispensable source of information for scientists, engineers, and technical staff active in all fields of electrochemistry.
The more than 2.770 entries have been written by a distinguished panel of eminent electrochemists.

Each entry supplies a clear and precise explanation of the term and provides references to the most useful reviews, books and original papers to enable readers to pursue a deeper understanding if so desired. The Electrochemical Dictionary will also be appreciatively consulted by scientists working in adjacent sciences and technologies, who need a quick understanding of the electrochemical terms they encounter.
More than 300 figures and illustrations elaborate the textual definitions. The Electrochemical Dictionary also contains biographical entries of people who have substantially contributed to electrochemistry.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This text has been created by the leading voices in the field who are able to synthesize complicated material into readily digestible ‘bit-size’ portions. … the creators of the Electrochemical Dictionary have done a laudable job to ensure that each definition included here has been defined in precise terms in a clear and readily accessible style. … Recommended to all libraries at the college-level for its long-term reference value relevant to a multiplicity of disciplines." (John Aiello, The Electric Review, September/October, 2008)

"This Electrochemical Dictionary contains … terms used in electrochemistry or directly related with this scientific field. … this dictionary as an essential tool for aiding not only students and researchers systematically working in electrochemistry, but also for scientists working in materials science, organic and inorganic synthesis and characterization, analytical chemistry, environmental sciences, etc. where electrochemical studies are involved. … It is a must for any scientific library, and a personal purchase can be strongly suggested to anybody interested in electrochemistry." (Antonio Doménech Carbó, Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry, Vol. 13, 2009)

"This book outlines the editors’ wish to assist the reader of electrochemical literature with a readably usable reference tool. … The text is readable, intelligible and very well written … . As a result the work should be accessible and useful to any reader studying for an undergraduate qualification in chemistry, and will doubtless be of use to postgraduates and professionals in the field as well. … It would prove a suitable purchase for any higher education or research institute where chemistry is supported." (Gareth J. Johnson, Reference Reviews, Vol. 23 (4), 2009)
