Written by leading authorities in their respective fields, it presents review articles on in situ or quasi-in situ techniques for the characterization of electrodes and electrochemical processes--appropriate for surface or bulk phase analysis. Divided into two sections covering in situ monitoring and characterization of structure and compositions of electrodes, electrolytes and products during electrolysis in Part A, and electrochemical techniques and theoretical-modeling tools in Part B.

The rising multidisciplinary interest in electrochemical research recently has led to new opportunities for innovation and research in application areas such as electrocatalysis, electrodeposition, corrosion, batteries and fuel cells. With this, needs for in situ or quasi-in situ techniques for measurements on electrodes and electrolytes and characterization of species during the conduct of electrochemical reactions have clearly been identified. Techniques for Characterization of Electrodes and Electrochemical Processes covers experimental and theoretical techniques, currently in use or being developed, for the characterization of electrodes and electrochemical processes. It emphasizes in situ and quasi-in situ techniques for measurement and monitoring. Each chapter contains a succinct description of the pertinent technique, with experimental and theoretical discussions. Examples from the literature amply illustrate applications and significance. Subjects covered include such topics as surface-enhanced Raman scattering, ellipsometry, impedance spectroscopy, Mossbauer spectroscopy, Exafs and Nexafs surface techniques, photothermal deflection spectroscopy, laser interferometry, modeling of current distribution in porous electrodes, and more. The book is divided into three sections; the first part provides articles on techniques appropriate for in situ characterization of structures and compositions of electrodes and electrolytes as well as electrochemical processes. Articles on electrochemical measurement techniques are included in the second part. The third part provides a couple of articles on modeling tools. The authors of the chapters are not only leaders in their respective fields but, in most instances, are responsible for developing some techniques for in situ applications. Outstanding technical achievements can be attributed to the following contributors: · Surface Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering (Rolf H. Muller) · Solid State Electrochemistry (J. Bruce Wagner) · Neutron Scattering (Christian Riekel) · Diffraction Techniques for Determining the Structure of Electrolytes (J. E. Enderby) · High Temperature Batteries and Zinc Electrode Development (E. J. Cairns) · Corrosion Science (D. MacDonald and F. Mansfeld) · Molten Salt Batteries (G. Mamantov) · Corrosion (Jerome Kruger) · Surface Electrochemistry (W. E. O’Grady) · Laser Interferometry (R. N. O’Brien and K. S. V. Santhanam) · Aqueous Battery Development, Electroplating, Nucleation and Electrocrystallization, and in in-situ Raman Spectroscopy of Electrodes (R. Varma) · Surface-enhanced Raman Effects (Ronald Birke).About the Author:
