The book "Developments in Electrochemistry" contains five feature articles in recent advanced electrochemistry. These selected feature articles emphasize physical phenomena rather than mathematical formalisms of electrochemistry.
The modern interest for phenomena at the semiconductor–electrolyte interface dates back to experiments performed in the 1950s with germanium, and has extended to most semiconducting materials for reasons of fundamental knowledge or potential application, going from semiconductor processing technology to heterogeneous photocatalysis to sensors. The subject is highly interdisciplinary and involves ﬁelds like electrochemistry, solid-state physics, and surface science.

Most electrochemical reactions take place at the interface of two or more phases. Hence the area of reaction plays a vital role in determining the efﬁciency of an electrochemical process, just like in any surface reaction. There are several ways to increase the available area for reaction in an electrochemical cell: multiple electrodes are stacked alternatively, bipolar electrodes are used, and, sometimes, the reaction surface is modiﬁed by etching or coating with large surface area particles. ...
In recent years, the awareness of water needs and processing
requirement has become an increasingly important topic.
As the earth's population increases the demand for "clean"
water has become an even larger factor in residential as
well as industrial and commercial costs. There are now
almost no natural water sources that do not require some
Every day countless kilometres of steel pipelines are installed
worldwide for the most varied civil and industrial uses.
They form real networks comparable to a system of road networks,
which, although not so obvious, are definitely much more intricate and
carry fluids that have become essential for us.
To comply with technical specifications and fulfil the necessary safety
requisites, special materials and welding processes which have
evolved with the sector have been developed in recent years.
Plasticizers are used to increase the process-ability, flexibility, and durability of the material, and of course to reduce the cost in many cases. This edition covers introduction and applications of various types of plasticizers including those based on non-toxic and highly effective pyrrolidones, and a new source of Collagen based bio-plasticizers that can be obtained from discarded materials from a natural source; Jumbo Squid (Dosidicus gigas).
Some years ago a consortium of enterprises and a university from different European countries and industrial sectors was established
to work together in the development of lighter lead–acid batteries for electrical and conventional vehicles with new innovative materials
and process techniques, with the final goal of increasing the energy density by means of a battery weight reduction. Its main idea was to
substitute the heavy lead alloy grids mechanical support of the active masses and collectors of the current produced during the charge
and discharge reactions.
The new edition of Principles of Electrochemistry has been considerably
extended by a number of new sections, particularly dealing with 'electrochemical
material science' (ion and electron conducting polymers, chemically
modified electrodes), photoelectrochemistry, stochastic processes, new aspects
of ion transfer across biological membranes, biosensors, etc. In view of
this extension of the book we asked Dr Ladislav Kavan (the author of the
section on non-electrochemical methods in the first edition) to contribute as
a co-author discussing many of these topics.
According to the definition, electrochemical cells are the devices transferring electrical
energy from chemical reactions into electricity, or helping chemical processes through
the introduction of electrical energy or electrical field. A common example in this
category is battery, which has evolved into a big family and is currently used in all
kinds of applications.
The eight chapters in this book cover topics on advanced anode and cathode materials, materials design, materials screening, electrode architectures, diagnostics and materials characterization, and electrode/electrolyte interface characterization for lithium batteries.
As the title, “Recent Researches in Metallurgical Engineering, From Extraction to Forming”
implies, this text blends new theories with practices covering a broad field of metalrelated
technologies including mineral processing, extractive metallurgy, heat
treatment and casting.
This book is divided into different 5 chapters. Each of the chapters is a review of the
research made by the authors during the last decade, and includes references to the
research published in scientific papers and conference proceedings by experts in the
Asymmetric’ supercapacitors consist of two electrodes that differ considerably in capacitance and utilize different mechanisms for energy storage. The asymmetric concept may employ a faradaic, rechargeable batterytype electrode process at the positive electrode, and a nonfaradaic double-layer capacitance at the negative electrode.

In the experiments reviewed in this post only two electroencephalographic channels "C3
and C4 "were considered to capture the endogenous electroencephalographic signals
from the subject. To create favorable conditions for the use of this technology is important to make it easy
use, "cosmosis" or how the user's device look like wearing BCI is also important,
this is the reason that the number of electrodes used in these devices is a key global
features, such as using fewer electrodes, the higher the comfort (Wolpaw, 2007)....
Fuel cells (FCs) are electrochemical systems that continuously produce electric energy and heat, where the reactants (fuel and oxidant) are fed to the electrodes and the reaction products are removed from the cell. The chemical energy of the reactants is directly converted into electricity, reaction products, and heat without involving combustion processes. The efﬁciencies of the FCs are about twice those of the heat engines because the latter are affected by the limitations imposed by Carnot’s theorem.
Double-layer carbon supercapacitors (electrochemical double-layer capacitor (EDLCs)) based on two carbon electrodes of high surface area separated by an electrolyte are the most popular electrochemical supercapacitors. The charge process is electrostatic with charge separation at the two electrode–electrolyte interfaces. The EDLCs can thus be modeled with two capacitances in series with what is called equivalent series resistance (ESR).
. In the atomic-hydrogen process, an arc is established between two tungsten electrodes in a stream of hydrogen gas using alternating current. As the gas passes through the arc, molecular hydrogen is dissociated into atomic hydrogen under the intense heat. When the stream of hydrogen atoms strikes the workpiece, the environmental temperature is then at a level where recombining into molecules is possible. As a result of the recombining, the heat of dissociation absorbed in the arc is liberated, supplying the heat needed for fusing the base metal and any filler metal that may be introduced.
The formation of gaseous O2 at the anode of an electrolytic cell containing an aqueous electrolyte solution is the most frequent electrode reaction. It has immense practical implication because it always accompanies the electrolytic production of H2 in water electrolyzers, the cathodic deposition of metals in metal electrowinning processes, and the application of a cathodic current in cathodic protection operations, and it takes place at the negative pole of metal–air power sources upon recharging. ...
