Author: International Society of Electrochemistry. Meeting
This book is a hard bound edition of a special issue (vol. 48/20-22) of the journal Electrochimica Acta. It summarizes the highlights of the 53rd Annual meeting of the International Society of Electrochemistry and Annual meeting of the GDCh-Fachgruppe Angewandte Elektrochemie. The theme of the conference was Electrochemistry in Molecular and Microscopic dimensions and was based on the role of electrochemistry in the miniaturization of chemical and physical methods. Topics covered are : - development of electrochemistry with microscopic and molecular resolution; - initiation of advances in Electrochemical Microsystem Technologies EMT, and micro/nano-electronics; - development of Electrochemical Materials Science for nanomaterials; - enhancement of miniaturization and sensitivity of electroanalysis, and; - the bridge from electrochemistry to biology and medicine of microscopic and molecular understanding. - Summarizes the highlights of two major electrochemistry meetings. - It includes research papers on the electrochemical processes in micro- and nanotechnology. - Highlights developments and advances in electrochemistry.
Fundamentals of Electrochemistry provides the basic outline of mosttopics of theoretical and applied electrochemistry for students notyet familiar with this field, as well as an outline of recent andadvanced developments in electrochemistry for people who arealready dealing with electrochemical problems. The content of this edition is arranged so that all basicinformation is contained in the first part of the book, which isnow rewritten and simplified in order to make it more accessibleand used as a textbook for undergraduate students. More advancedtopics, of interest for postgraduate levels, come in the subsequentparts. This updated second edition focuses on experimental techniques,including a comprehensive chapter on physical methods for theinvestigation of electrode surfaces. New chapters deal with recenttrends in electrochemistry, including nano- andmicro-electrochemistry, solid-state electrochemistry, andelectrocatalysis. In addition, the authors take into account theworldwide renewal of interest for the problem of fuel cells andinclude chapters on batteries, fuel cells, and double layercapacitors.
This book titled "Recent Trend in Electrochemical Science and Technology" contains a selection of chapters focused on advanced methods used in the research area of electrochemical science and technologies; descriptions of electrochemical systems; processing of novel materials and mechanisms relevant for their operation. This book provides an overview on some of the recent development in electrochemical science and technology. Particular emphasis is given both to the theoretical and the experimental aspect of modern electrochemistry. Since it was impossible to cover the rich diversity of electrochemical techniques and applications in a single issue, the focus is on the recent trends and achievements related to electrochemical science and technology.
Because of its simplicity of use and quantitative results, Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (SECM) has become an indispensable tool for the study of surface reactivity. The fast expansion of the SECM field during the last several years has been fueled by the introduction of new probes, commercially available instrumentation, and new practical applications. Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy, Second Edition offers essential background and in-depth overviews of specific applications in self-contained chapters. Recent methodological advances have greatly increased the capacity of SECM to characterize interfaces at the nanoscale and to obtain molecular-level chemical information. This thoroughly updated edition retains original chapters describing the principles of SECM measurements, instrumentation, preparation of SECM probes, imaging methodologies, and theory and offers: New chapters on studies of single biological cells, corrosion, electrocatalysis, and hybrid techniques Descriptions of recent advances of SECM in several areas of current interest: biotechnological applications, nanofabrication and surface patterning, and molecular transport across films and membranes Discussion of the ongoing shift from micrometer-scale experiments to the nanoscale Useful for a broad range of interdisciplinary research—from biological systems to probing reactions at the liquid–liquid interface—this book is invaluable to all interested in learning and applying SECM.
Driven by the electronics industry, electrochemical technology has rapidly evolved, finding increasing applications in microelectronics, batteries, sensors, materials science, industrial fabrication, corrosion, microbiology, neurobiology and medicine. Electrochemical Microsystem Technologies provides an overview of the technological status; the dev
If, ten years ago, one had been asked to comment on the prospects of peering into the fmest details of biomolecular organization, most electron microscopists would, I suppose at least, have been quite en thusiastic. When, during the early seventies, several groups were success ful in visualizing single heavy atoms, which undoubtedly was a techni cal triumph, this prompted the most sanguine expectations among bi ologists. In the following years, however, it began to transpire that radiation damage might impose limitations preventing us from taking full advantage of these exciting instrumental feasibilities. Fortunately, the radiation damage nightmare did no paralyze further activities, and it was in particular the work on the purple membrane which, brilliant ly exploiting the redundancy stratagem, revealed exhilarating new perspectives. Now, almost five years later, it seemed timely and appro priate to organize an international symposium to discuss and weight recent activities and current trends in "molecular microscopy". In planning this symposium, we selected topics according to our view of what is important or will deserve more attention in the near future. Taking into consideration suggestions made by the invited participants, some supplementary aspects were included; as a conse quence, the program developed somewhat beyond the scope as adum brated by the original title of this meeting (Regular 2-D Arrays of Biomacromolecules: Structure Determination and Assembly). As the meeting was organized, we had three morning sessions aimed at reflecting the "State ofthe Art".
