About this book
An excellent way into the subject'- New Scientist Introduction to Electrochemistry is the first major new text in the field in recent years. The author takes the student from the basics through to a level suitable for beginning a post-graduate course. The chapters cover theory from electrolytes through electrodes to cells, both equilibrium and dynamic. Applications and methods are given great emphasis, and the second part of the text focuses on these aspects with coverage of electrosynthesis, electroanalytical chemistry, industrial electrochemistry, batteries and corrosion. Scattered throughout the text are panels of historical and anecdotal information illustrating unusual and often amusing aspects of electrochemistry not normally presented to the student. This, plus the highly readable style adopted by Brynn Hibbert, and his use of fully worked problems at the end of each chapter, make Introduction to Electrochemistry the ideal undergraduate textbook choice. Introduction to Electrochemistry is part of the Macmillan Physical Sciences Series.
