An Introduction to Electrochemical Engineering
Electrochemical processes have an ever-increasing importance in a number of industrial activities. As this book shows, the evolution that has occurred since the start of the 20th century is astonishing and covers a broad range of activities. In spite of this evolution, university texts on industrial electrochemistry are scant, mostly addressed to graduate or post-graduate students and usually focused on specific aspects of the wide variety of electrochemistry applications. Moreover, most of these texts skip over the fundamental principles that are involved in electrode processes and, then, students learn to employ a variety of techniques without mastering their foundations.
This book, rather, details central aspects of solution conductivity, electrode thermodynamics and electrode processes which are not covered in the usual programs of Physical Chemistry and the main tools to be considered in reactor design. It also considers the central problems in five issues of broad impact, with which most engineers and industrial chemists will be involved during their professional life. The book will be useful for undergraduate students of regular courses in Chemical Engineering and Chemistry Schools, as well as graduate students in most branches of Engineering.
Carlos M. Marschoff received his PhD in Chemistry from the University of Buenos Aires in 1974 and is a Consultant Professor at the Engineering Faculty of the University of Buenos Aires. He has published more than 60 papers on electrochemistry, corrosion and thermodynamics and about 40 papers on energy and technological forecasting, and served as the Director of the Electrochemistry and Corrosion Laboratory at the University of Los Andes, Venezuela, and of the Electrochemistry and Corrosion Laboratory at the University of Buenos Aires.
Pablo D. Giunta received his PhD from the University of Buenos Aires in 2011, before carrying out postdoctoral research at Commisariat de l’énergie atomique, France. He is an Adjoint Research Fellow of the National Council for Scientific Research, Argentina, and teaches Electrochemistry for Chemical Engineers at the Engineering Faculty of the University of Buenos Aires. He is the author of 15 journal articles.
