Research and Markets, leading source for international market research and
market data, has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report
Electrochemistry: A Laboratory Textbook" to their offering.
The only comprehensive collection of easy-to-perform electrochemical experiments
for both high school lessons and university lab courses. It illustrates the
broad area of electrochemistry with respect to thematic aspects and apparatus
used in the experiments. In addition, it highlights the interdisciplinary connections
to related fields.
Following a brief overview, the book goes on to deal with electrochemistry
at equilibrium and with flowing current, while further chapters cover analytical
electrochemistry, non-traditional methods, electrochemical energy storage and
conversion as well as technical electrochemistry.
Throughout, the author clearly describes every detail of the experiments and
gives helpful guidance for the production of rare working materials.
Complementing textbooks on electrochemistry, this is a must for lecturers as
well as for students in chemistry.
Rudolf Holze studied chemistry at the University of Bonn, Germany. He received
his PhD for his work on components for electrochemical energy converting and
storage systems. After that he went to the Case Western Reserve University,
Cleveland, USA and dedicated himself to investigating the structure and dynamics
of electrochemical double layer using spectroscopical methods. In 1987 Holze
moved to the University of Oldenburg, Germany where he became professor in physical
chemistry in 1989. Currently Rudolf Holze is professor at the Technical University
of Chemnitz, Germany where his research is focused on structure and dynamics
at electrified interfaces with emphasis on the development of experimental methods
and the application of out know-how on problems of technological importance.
He is author of numerous publications and several books.
