Description

A description of the basic principles of electrochemical engineering and their application to energy storage, industrial electrolysis, and corrosion.

Features

  • presents principles and equations for analyzing electrochemical systems - and explores thermodynamics, kinetics, and mass transport.
  • explains the techniques for modeling electrochemical cells.
  • provides the calculation procedures for current and potential distribution.
  • contains illustrations of several industrial electrochemical applications - e.g., electric vehicle and chlor-alkali process.
