This title presents the fundamental principles as well as the theoretical tools for the interpretation and model development of solid-gas interactions. Chemical, physical, and electrochemical aspects are presented from both the thermodynamic and kinetic points of view. The theoretical aspects of electrical properties on the surface of a solid are also covered to provide greater accessibility for those with a physico-chemical background. The second part of the book is devoted to the development of devices for gas detection in a system approach. Methods for experimental investigations concerning solid-gas interactions are covered and results are presented in order to support the methodology.
