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.
An Overview of Practical Electrochemistry
Electrochemistry in Equilibrium
Electrochemistry with Flowing Current
Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage

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.
