The renowned Oxford Chemistry Primers series, which provides focused introductions to a range of important topics in chemistry, has been refreshed and updated to suit the needs of today's students, lecturers, and postgraduate researchers. The rigorous, yet accessible, treatment of each subject area is ideal for those wanting a primer in a given topic to prepare them for more advanced study or research. Moreover, cutting-edge examples and applications throughout the texts show the relevance of the chemistry being described to current research and industry.
The learning features provided, including questions at the end of every chapter and online multiple-choice questions, encourage active learning and promote understanding. Furthermore, frequent diagrams, margin notes, further reading, and glossary definitions all help to enhance a student's understanding of these essential areas of chemistry.
This brand new addition to the series provides the most accessible first introduction to electrochemistry, combining explanation of the fundamental concepts with practical examples of how they are applied in a range of real-world situations.
The online resources that accompany Electrochemistry includes:
1: Introduction to electrochemistry
2: The electrochemical cell
3: Potentials, interfaces, electrodes and mass transport
4: Heterogeneous electron transfer and the Tafel equation
5: Dynamic electrochemical techniques
6: Batteries, fuel cells, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy
"An insightful and clear coverage of the main principles and phenomena in electrochemical studies." - Vasily Oganesyan, University of East Anglia
"A superb introductory text to electrochemistry, which describes how the key relationships that underlie modern electrochemistry are derived, and how they are used." - Mark Symes, University of Glasgow
"There are so few beginners' text books that address electrochemistry in this logical way and bring in circuits so early." - Petra Cameron, University of Bath
