About the Book :-
This long awaited and thoroughly updated version of the classic text (Plenum Press, 1970) explains the subject of electrochemistry of solutions at the molecular level in clear, straightforward language. The Second Edition takes full advantage of the advances in microscopy, computing power, and industrial applications since the publication of the First Edition.
In particular, Chapter 6 describing the electrochemical stage-the high field region near the interface-has been completely rewritten. The chapter on electrode kinetics covers many new areas, such as electrochemical theories of potential-dependent gas catalysis. The entirely new Chapter 8 explains how electrochemists deal with the fast-changing nature of the electrode surface. Quantum Mechanics as the basis for electrode kinetics is given an entirely new look-up to and including considerations of bond-breaking reactions.
A completely new feature is the liberal supply of problem sets. There are exercises for practice in the use of equations; somewhat more involved problems that relate the material to "real life" situations; and yet more difficult "micro-research" problems, each of which may take around a day to solve.
The First Edition of this remarkable work continues to sell copies even now, 27 years after its publication. With the Second Edition, Bockris, Reddy, and Gamboa-Aldeco accomplish the prodigious feat of improving on the First.
