Electrochemistry is the study of a special class of interfaces--those between an ionic and an electronic conductor--that can conduct current. This makes it especially important to research and for industrial applications such as semiconductors. This book examines different topics within interfacial electrochemistry, including the theory of structures and processes at metal- solution and semiconductor-solution interfaces, the principles of classical and modern experimental methods, and some of the applications of electrochemistry. Students and nonspecialists in materials science, surface science, and chemistry will find this a valuable source of information.

"This is a lovely book. Wolfgang Schmickler presents us with a readable, accurate survey of the fundamentals of electrochemistry with, as the title implies, focus on the specifically interfacial aspects. . . .I found it completely engaging and enjoyable. Brutal self-discipline on the part of the author has produced an elegantly terse and readable text. . . .it is now the single best book to read and own."--American Scientist "This is a lovely book.
