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.
(BQ) Part 1 book "Electrochemical methods - Fundamentals and applications" has contents: Introduction and overview of electrode processes, potentials and thermodynamics of cells, kinetics of electrode reactions, mass transfer by migration and diffusion, basic potential step methods, potential sweep methods, polarography and pulse voltammetry,...and other contents.
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
(BQ) In the present study an analysis has been done to
evaluate the electrode wear along the cross-section of an
electrode compared to the same along its length during
EDM of aluminum and mild steel using copper and brass
(BQ) Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) is a non-traditional machining process which has the ability to machine hard, difficult to machine materials and the parts with complex internal shapes by using precisely controlled sparks that occurs between an electrode and a work piece in the presence of a dielectric fluid.
(BQ) In this research work two different materials have been used as work pieces. These EN8 and D3 steel materials have been
machined in an Electrical discharge machine which has wide application in Industry fields. The important process parameters that have been selected are peak current, pulse on time, die electric pressure and tool diameter. The outputs responses are material removal rate (MRR), tool wear rate (TWR) and surface roughness (SR).
(BQ) Electrical discharge machining (EDM) is a widespread process which works very effectively in machining of difficult-to-cut materials and alloys in die and aerospace industries with high dimensional accuracies. However, this capability could be deteriorated due to electrode wear leading to
decrease of process productivity. In this study, the effect of machining parameters of EDM process including on-time, current, voltage, the engaging time between workpiece and electrode, and pre-EDM roughing on electrode wear were experimentally investigated.
(BQ) In this paper, attempts have been made to model and optimize process parameters in Electro-Discharge Machining (EDM) of
tungsten carbide-cobalt composite (Iso grade: K10) using cylindrical copper tool electrodes in planing machining mode based on statistical techniques.
(BQ) The present study discusses about having an overview of the
EDM process, modeling of process parameters, and influence of process parameters such as input electrical variables, pulse shape, and discharge energy on performance measures such as material removal rate, surface roughness and electrode wear rate.
(BQ) From the experimental results, it has been found that the electrical conductivity of the tool electrode has the most influencing nature on the machining characteristics in EDM process. The optimal combination of the input process parameters has been obtained using Taguchi-grey relational analysis.
(BQ) This paper describes the heat source diameter of single pulse discharge in electrical discharge machining. To observe the discharge plasma, SiC and Ga2O3 single crystals were used as the electrode material since they are optically transparent and electrically conductive. It was found that plasma diameter expands within a few microseconds after dielectric breakdown and the plasma diameter is much larger than the discharge crater.
(BQ) One of the most significant problems of electrical discharge machining (EDM) is electrode wear, which
results in shape errors and low productivity. In this study, a new EDM method using a strip electrode (strip
EDM) was developed in order to overcome the wear problem.
(BQ) In this study, the effect of machining parameters of EDM process including on-time, current, voltage, the engaging
time between workpiece and electrode, and pre-EDM roughing on electrode wear were experimentally investigated. Main effects of factors and interactions were considered in this paper and regression equation was derived. A L50 (21 × 511) Taguchi’s standard orthogonal array was employed as experimental design. Copper was used as electrode to machine the hot work tool steel 1.2714, which is widely used to make forging dies and mandrels.
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.
