The topics covered include the following:
∗ Simple emf measurements with cells
∗ Equilibrium and dynamic measurements
∗ Cyclic voltammetry
∗ Rotated disc, ring–disc and wall–jet electrodes
∗ In situ spectroelectrochemistry measurements
∗ Impedance analysis
∗ Preparation of electrodes
∗ Data processing
The book also contains a comprehensive bibliography and details of web–based resources.
Electroanalytical Chemistry assumes no prior knowledge of this powerful branch of analytical science and will be an invaluable aid for anyone wanting to perform analytical measurements using electrochemical techniques. The book′s approach is ideal for students studying at Foundation, BTEC (HNC and HND), and for those pursuing BSc and MChem courses in analytical and physical chemistry, as well as subsidiary courses in life, environmental and materials science.
Analytical Techniques in the Sciences
This series of books provides coverage of all the major analytical techniques and their application in the most important areas of physical, life and materials sciences. Each text is presented in an open–learning/distance–learning style, in which the learning objectives are clearly identified. The reader′s understanding of the materials is constantly evaluated by the use of self–assessment and discussion questions.
