Topics in Number 36 include:
*Electrochemical nuclear magnetic resonance (EC-NMR). This powerful non-invasive technique brings new insights to both fundamental and practical key aspects of electrocatalysis, including the design of better anodes for PEM fuel cells.
*The recent impressive advances in the use of rigorous ab initio quantum chemical calculations in electrochemistry. This lucid chapter is addressed to all electrochemists, including those with very little prior exposure to quantum chemistry, and demonstrates the usefulness of ab initio calculations, including density functional theory (DFT) methods, to understand several key aspects of fuel cell electrocatalysis at the molecular level.
*The most important macroscopic and statistical thermodynamic models developed to describe adsorption phenomena on electrodes, including the current state of the art adsorption isotherms, which are both rigorous, and in good agreement with experiment.
*Electrochemical promotion i.e., the use of electrochemistry to activate and in situ tune the catalytic activity and selectivity of metal and metal oxide catalysts interfaced with solid electrolytes.
*Lithium transport through transition metal oxides and carbonaceous materials, which is of paramount importance in rechargeable lithium batteries.

Industry Reviews

From reviews of previous volumes:
"This long-standing series continues its tradition of offering high quality reviews of established and emerging subject areas, together with the less common aspects of electrochemical science[...] Deserves a place in electrochemistry libraries and should prove useful to electrochemists and related workers."
(Chemistry and Industry)
"Continues the valuable service that has been rendered by the Modern Aspects series."
(Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry)
Will definitely be of much use to researchers in the field of electrochemistry[...] The editors of this well-produced volume deserve all appreciation for maintaining the excellent standard of the series."
(Bulletin of Electrochemistry)
"Extremely well-referenced and very readable[...] Maintains the overall high standards of the series."
(Journal of the American Chemical Society)

From the reviews of the first edition:

"As the most recent volume of a successful series established in 1954 and carefully continued, this book provides a timely collection of review papers covering all aspects of electrochemistry with representative contributions. ... The researcher interested in this field will appreciate the inclusion of fundamental aspects. ... the book is a must for all libraries already owning previous volumes ... ." (Rudolf Holze, Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry, Vol. 9 (4), 2005)
