This user friendly introduction highlights the importance of electrochemistry and its applications to the modern world and the future. In contrast to other texts currently available, it emphasises understanding and avoids using many pages of complex equations. It also describes the diverse applications of electrochemistry rather than focusing on analytical chemistry alone. Although the book follows a similar structure to the first edition, the earlier chapters have been extensively up-dated and the later chapters are entirely new. The text is supported by a large number of figures which illustrate key points. The book starts by describing the essential electrochemical techniques before moving on to cover experimental problems and applications. To reflect the present interest in fuel cells and the environment, these have become the focus of the final chapters. A useful appendix contains problems with fully worked answers to test the reader's understanding.Although seldom carried out in practical electrochemistry, the thermodynamic equation, (1.29), should strictly be written in terms of activities. ... activities (e.g. it would be unwise if the solution contained a high concentration of electroactive species and no excess of electrolyte), ... Also by definition, the activities of elements and gases at a pressure of 1 atmosphere are 1, often allowing further simplificationanbsp;...
