Energetics and Elements of the Kinetics of Electrode Processes

  • B. E. Conway


On the basis of the assumption that this volume will be read not only by specialists in electrochemistry but also by electrochemical engineers and technologists, as well as materials scientists, it has been considered desirable to include a brief chapter on the basic aspects of charge transfer at electrode interfaces, especially their energetics and kinetics. Some notes on the requirements for experimental measurements on capacitor and battery electrodes are also included.
