This second edition provides discussion on the diverse roles of electrochemical technology in today's industry. The intention is to emphasize that the applications, though extremely diverse, all are based on the same principles of electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering. This edition contains up-to-date information, with some of the chapters being largely altered in view of progress in the industry in both improved technology and completely new processes and devices. An extra chapter on electrochemical sensors has been added since the previous edition. The topics relating to the industry are separated into various chapters and discussed. These topics include fundamental concepts through the chlor-alkali industry to electrochemical sensors and monitoring techniques.

Industry Reviews

Many a technologist will be led to the direct solution of a problem, or provided with inspiration for some lateral thinking. - Chemistry & Industry; This book is an excellent one with a judicious balance of both applied and fundamental aspects...The authors are to be congratulated for bringing out such an enlightening book on industrial electrochemistry - Bulletin of Electrochemistry; The authors ... must be congratulated on the amount of factual material that they have included. Their style of writing is also very good, making the book eminently readable whether you just want to dip into a specific topic or perhaps pursue a much larger section. - Transactions of the Institute of Metal Finishing; As a readable, general textbook it can be recommended to all chemists and chemical engineering interested in the subject, whether in industry or university life. - Journal of Chemical Technical Biotechnology; ...a welcome addition to the literature... - Chemistry & Industry.; Here is an opportunity to obtain one of the most comprehensive treatments of fundamental and applied aspects of electrochemistry at a real value for money price...a must for most industrialists and academics working in the field. - Chemistry and Industry; The emphasis on costing and economics should appeal to a variety of reader interests...The practical aspects are well covered...[this book] will find its way into many private libraries. - Chemical Monographs Review; ...The authors are to be congratulated for bringing out such an enlightening book on industrial electrochemistry. - Bulletin of Electrochemistry
