About this book

This volume of Modern Aspects contains a remarkable spread of topics covered in an authoritative manner by some internationally renowned specialists. In a seminal chapter Drs. Babu, Oldfield and Wieckowski demonstrate eloquently the strength of electrochemical nuclear magnetic resonance (EC-NMR) to study in situ both sides of the electrochemical interface via the simultaneous use of and This powerful non-invasive technique brings new insights to both fundamental and practical key aspects of electrocatalysis, including the design of better anodes for PEM fuel cells. The recent impressive advances in the use of rigorous ab initio quantum chemical calculations in electrochemistry are described in a remarkable chapter by Marc Koper, one of the leading protagonists in this fascinating area. This lucid chapter is addressed to all electrochemists, including those with very little prior exposure to quantum chemistry, and demonstrates the usefulness of ab initio calculations, including density functional theory (DFT) methods, to understand several key aspects of fuel cell electrocatalysis at the molecular level. The most important macroscopic and statistical thermodynamic models developed to describe adsorption phenomena on electrodes are presented critically in a concise and authoritative chapter by Panos Nikitas. The reader is guided through the seminal contributions of Frumkin, Butler, Bockris, Guidelli and others, to the current state of the art adsorption isotherms, which are both rigorous, and in good agreement with experiment.

Reviews

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 of the first edition:

"As the most recent volume of a successful series established in 1954 and carefully continued, this book provides a timely collection of review papers covering all aspects of electrochemistry with representative contributions. … The researcher interested in this field will appreciate the inclusion of fundamental aspects. … the book is a must for all libraries already owning previous volumes … ." (Rudolf Holze, Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry, Vol. 9 (4), 2005)
