Fundamentals of electrochemistry book, 2nd edition by V.S. Bagotsky


preface of This book

  Two very important fields of natural science—chemistry and the science of electricity— matured and grew vigorously during the first half of the nineteenth century. Electrochemistry developed simultaneously. From the very beginning, electrochemistry was not merely a peripheral field but evolved with an important degree of independence, and it also left very significant marks on the development of chemistry and of the theory of electricity.
  Today, electrochemistry is a rigorous science concerned with the quantitative relations among the chemical, surface, and electrical properties of systems. Electrochemistry has strong links to many other fields of science. Electrochemical concepts proved particularly fruitful for studying and interpreting a number of very important biological processes
  This book seeks essentially to provide a rigorous, yet lucid and comprehensible outline of the basic concepts (phenomena, processes, and laws) that form the subject matter of modern theoretical and applied electrochemistry. Particular attention is given to electrochemical problems of fundamental significance, yet those often treated in an obscure or even incorrect way in monographs and texts. Among these problems are some, that appear elementary at first glance, such as the mechanism of current flow in electrolyte solutions, the nature of electrode potentials, and the values of the transport numbers in diffusion layers.
