Preface

Given the existing books on electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering, what do we hope to accomplish with this text? The answer is twofold. First, it is our goal to provide enough of the fundamentals to enable students to approach interesting problems, but not so much that new students are overwhelmed. In doing this, we have attempted to write with the student in mind, and choices regarding content, examples, and applications have been made with the aim of helping students understand and experience the important and exciting discipline of electrochemical engineering. The text has a large number of worked out examples, includes homework problems for each chapter, and uses consistent nomenclature throughout in order to facilitate student learning. Our second objective is to integrate key applications of electrochemical engineering with the relevant fundamentals in a single book. We have found applications to be of great interest to students. Importantly, applications provide students with the opportunity to practice in a meaningful way the fundamentals that they have learned. We have made a deliberate effort to tie the investigation of the applications directly back to the fundamental principles.

The book is intended for senior-level engineering students and entering graduate students in engineering and the sciences. No knowledge of electrochemistry is assumed, but an undergraduate training in thermodynamics, transport, and freshman chemistry is needed. A basic ...
