9780412165009: Industrial Electrochemistry

The objective of this second edition remains the discussion of the many diverse roles of electrochemical technology in industry. Throughout the book, the intention is to emphasize that the applications, though extremely diverse, all are on the same principles of electrochemistry and electrochemical engineer­ based ing. Those familiar with the first edition will note a significant increase in the number of pages. The most obvious addition is the separate chapter on electrochemical sensors but, in fact, all chapters have been reviewed thoroughly and many have been altered substantially. These changes to the book partly reflect the different view of a second author as well as comments from students and friends. Also, they arise inevitably from the vitality and strength of electrochemical technology; in addition to important improvements in tech­ nology, new electrolytic processes and electrochemical devices continue to be reported. In the preface to the first edition it was stated: . . . the future for electrochemical technology is bright and there is a general expectation that new applications of electrochemistry will become economic as the world responds to the challenge of more expensive energy, of the need to develop new materials and to exploit different chemical feedstocks and of the necessity to protect the environment. The preparation of this second edition, seven years after these words were written, provided an occasion to review the progress of industrial electro­ chemistry.

Review:

Many a technologist will be led to the direct solution of a problem, or provided with inspiration for some lateral thinking. - Chemistry & Industry; This book is an excellent one with a judicious balance of both applied and fundamental aspects...The authors are to be congratulated for bringing out such an enlightening book on industrial electrochemistry - Bulletin of Electrochemistry; The authors ... must be congratulated on the amount of factual material that they have included. Their style of writing is also very good, making the book eminently readable whether you just want to dip into a specific topic or perhaps pursue a much larger section. - Transactions of the Institute of Metal Finishing; As a readable, general textbook it can be recommended to all chemists and chemical engineering interested in the subject, whether in industry or university life. - Journal of Chemical Technical Biotechnology; ...a welcome addition to the literature... - Chemistry & Industry.; Here is an opportunity to obtain one of the most comprehensive treatments of fundamental and applied aspects of electrochemistry at a real value for money price...a must for most industrialists and academics working in the field. - Chemistry and Industry; The emphasis on costing and economics should appeal to a variety of reader interests...The practical aspects are well covered...[this book] will find its way into many private libraries. - Chemical Monographs Review; ...The authors are to be congratulated for bringing out such an enlightening book on industrial electrochemistry. - Bulletin of Electrochemistry

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Electrochemistry is clearly an important component of the technology of many quite diverseindustries. Moreover, the future for electrochemical technology is bright and there is a general expectation that new applications of electrochemistry will become economic as the world responds to the challenge of more expensive energy, of the need to develop new materials and to exploit different chemical feedstocks and of the necessity to protect the environment. quot; Inthis situation, the present rather fragmentary state ofelectrochemical technology is disappointing. Whilethere are many similarities in the underlying principles and even the practices of the electrochemically based industries, they are often not fully appreciated. Certainly, the Rand D programmes in many industries are in the hands of those with little formal training and whose experience of and interest in other branches of electrochemistry is very limited. Moreover, the academic world has done little to help. Electrode processes are, too often, totally ignored in courses to both scientists and engineers and certainly electrochemical technology is almost never taught as a unified subject with an appropriate balance between fundamentals, engineering and applications. Overall, it isnot surprising that the various strands have not interwoven and that scientists and engineers do not have a proper appreciation of the importance of electrochemical technology. Inthe first half of 1979 I conducted a survey into the research and development needs of the various industries in Britain using electrochemical technology. Bookseller Inventory # LIE9780412165009
