Electrochemistry for Materials Science introduces the prcinciples of electrochemistry with an emphasis on materials science applications. Often considered a difficult subject to grasp, this book provides clear structuring of the main topic comprising electrolytes, electrodes, development of the potential differences in combining electrolytes with electrodes, the electrochemical double layer, mass transport, and charge transfer. More detailed chapters help to bridge the gap between introductory texts and more specialized books on the subject.These include electrodeposition of metals and alloys, electrochemistry of oxides and semiconductors, intrinsically conducting polymers, and aspects of nanotechnology with an emphasis on the codeposition of nanoparticles.
All in all, this book provides a good introduction into electrochemistry and sufficient information on the basic materials science aspects of electrochemistry for graduate students, researchers and advanced readers in materials science, chemistry, physics and engineering.
