Explains the current state of the science and points the wayto technological advances

First developed in the late 1980s, lithium-ion batteries nowpower everything from tablet computers to power tools to electriccars. Despite tremendous progress in the last two decades in theengineering and manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries, they arecurrently unable to meet the energy and power demands of many newand emerging devices. This book sets the stage for the developmentof a new generation of higher-energy density, rechargeablelithium-ion batteries by advancing battery chemistry andidentifying new electrode and electrolyte materials.

The first chapter of Lithium Batteries sets thefoundation for the rest of the book with a brief account of thehistory of lithium-ion battery development. Next, the book coverssuch topics as:

  • Advanced organic and ionic liquid electrolytes for batteryapplications
  • Advanced cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries
  • Metal fluorosulphates capable of doubling the energy density oflithium-ion batteries
  • Efforts to develop lithium-air batteries
  • Alternative anode rechargeable batteries such as magnesium andsodium anode systems

Each of the sixteen chapters has been contributed by one or moreleading experts in electrochemistry and lithium battery technology.Their contributions are based on the latest published findings aswell as their own firsthand laboratory experience. Figuresthroughout the book help readers understand the concepts underlyingthe latest efforts to advance the science of batteries and developnew materials. Readers will also find a bibliography at the end ofeach chapter to facilitate further research into individualtopics.

Lithium Batteries provides electrochemistry students andresearchers with a snapshot of current efforts to improve batteryperformance as well as the tools needed to advance their ownresearch efforts.

-Corrosion on the First Edition of Fundamentals of ElectrochemicalDeposition

From computer hardware to automobiles, medical diagnostics toaerospace, electrochemical deposition plays a crucial role in anarray of key industries. Fundamentals of ElectrochemicalDeposition, Second Edition is a comprehensive introduction to oneof today's most exciting and rapidly evolving fields of practicalknowledge.

The most authoritative introduction to the field so far, the bookpresents detailed coverage of the full range of electrochemicaldeposition processes and technologies, including:
* Metal-solution interphase
* Charge transfer across an interphase
* Formation of an equilibrium electrode potential
* Nucleation and growth of thin films
* Kinetics and mechanisms of electrodeposition
* Electroless deposition
* In situ characterization of deposition processes
* Structure and properties of deposits
* Multilayered and composite thin films
* Interdiffusion in thin film
* Applications in the semiconductor industry and the field ofmedicine

This new edition updates the prior edition to address the newdevelopments in the science and its applications, with new chapterson innovative applications of electrochemical deposition insemiconductor technology, magnetism and microelectronics, andmedical instrumentation. Added coverage includes such topics asbinding energy, nanoclusters, atomic force, and scanning tunnelingmicroscopy.Example problems at the end of chapters and otherfeatures clarify and improve understanding of the material.

Written by an author team with extensive experience in bothindustry and academe, this reference and text provides awell-rounded introduction to the field for students, as well as ameans for professional chemists, engineers, and technicians toexpand and sharpen their skills in using the technology.
The comprehensive, accessible introduction to fuel cells, theirapplications, and the challenges they pose

Fuel cells—electrochemical energy devices that produceelectricity and heat—present a significant opportunity forcleaner, easier, and more practical energy. However, the excitementover fuel cells within the research community has led to such rapidinnovation and development that it can be difficult for those notintimately familiar with the science involved to figure out exactlyhow this new technology can be used. Fuel Cells: Problems andSolutions, Second Edition addresses this issue head on, presentingthe most important information about these remarkable power sourcesin an easy-to-understand way.

Comprising four important sections, the book explores:

The fundamentals of fuel cells, how they work, their history,and much more

The major types of fuel cells, including proton exchangemembrane fuel cells (PEMFC), direct liquid fuel cells (DLFC), andmany others

The scientific and engineering problems related to fuel celltechnology

The commercialization of fuel cells, including a look at theiruses around the world

Now in its second edition, this book features fully revisedcoverage of the modeling of fuel cells and small fuel cells forportable devices, and all-new chapters on the structural andwetting properties of fuel cell components, experimental methodsfor fuel cell stacks, and nonconventional design principles forfuel cells, bringing the content fully up to date.

Designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students inengineering and chemistry programs, as well as professionalsworking in related fields, Fuel Cells is a compact and accessibleintroduction to the exciting world of fuel cells and why theymatter.

Excellent teaching and resource material . . . it is concise,coherently structured, and easy to read . . . highly recommendedfor students, engineers, and researchers in all relatedfields."
