The first book of its kind, Environmental Electrochemistry considers the role that electrochemical science and engineering can play in environmental remediation, pollution targeting, and pollutant recycling. Electrochemical-based sensors and abatement technologies for the detection, quantification, and treatment of environmental pollutants are described. Each chapter includes an extensive listing of supplemental readings, with illustrations throughout the bookto clarify principles and approaches detailed in the text.
* The first book to review electro- and photoelectrochemical technologies for environmental remediation, pollution sensors and pollutant recycling
* Applicable to a broad audience of environmental scientists and practicing electrochemists
* Includes both laboratory concepts and practical applications

This book explores the application of electrochemical and photochemical methods to pollution sensors and pollution abatement. Written for both nonspecialists and practitioners, Environmental Electrochemistry provides comprehensive coverage of theory and practice in this important and growing area of environmental science and technology. Extensive references enhance the value of this handbook for both academia and industry.
The book is divided into eight chapters. The first two are introductory, covering relevant aspects of environmental science and technology, and electrochemistry and electrochemical processes. Chapter 3 provides a survey of the electrochemical database on common types of environmental pollutants. Chapters 4 through 7 delve into the details of environmental electrochemical analyses (Chapter 4), electrochemical methods for pollution abatement (Chapter 5), photo-assisted methods for pollution control (Chapter 6), and water/air disinfection approaches (Chapter 7). In Chapter 8m the commercial applications of many of these approaches are explored. The reference list is extensive in each case facilitating easy entry into the specialized literature. Illustrations are liberally employed to help in the understanding of a particular principle or approach.
Krishnan Rajeshwar has published over 120 scientific papers and several book chapters in the fields of thermal analysis methods development, semiconductor electrosynthesis and photoelectrochemistry, and charge transport/storage mechanisms in bioconductive oxides and polymers. Rajeshwar was born in Trivandrum, India in 1947. He received a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, and completed his post-doctoral training at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia and Colorado State University in Fort Collins. After finishing his training in 1983, Dr. Rajeshwar joined the Chemistry Department at the University of Texas at Arlington. He was promoted from Assistant Professor to Associate Professor in 1987, and to Full Professor in 1989.
Jorge Ibanez has published 30 papers and has also authored a textbook in the field of Laboratory Sciences. He completed his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at the University of Houston in 1982 and has been at Universidad Iberamericana since 1985, where he is now a professor of Chemical Engineering. Dr. Ibanez has held visiting appointments at the University of Texas, Merrimack College of Massachusetts, and at several other institutions. He is also the President Elect of the Mexican Electrochemical Society.
