note is designed to introduce the basics and applications of electrochemistry to
students in varied fields, including analytical, physical and materials
chemistry. Major topics covered includes: Electrode processes, Electron
transfer kinetics, Mass transfer: convection, migration and diffusion,
Double-layer structures and surface adsorption, Potential step techniques,
Potential sweep method, Hydrodynamic techniques and Impedance based techniques.
This book presents the link between the exposed method and its
applications in a very explicit manner and offers a wide range of practical
examples. The book provides not only a vision of actual methods but also their
necessary further improvements and suggested developments.
