The definitive resource for electroplating, now completely up todate

With advances in information-age technologies, the field ofelectroplating has seen dramatic growth in the decade since theprevious edition of Modern Electroplating was published. Thisexpanded new edition addresses these developments, providing acomprehensive, one-stop reference to the latest methods andapplications of electroplating of metals, alloys, semiconductors,and conductive polymers.

With special emphasis on electroplating and electrochemicalplating in nanotechnologies, data storage, and medicalapplications, the Fifth Edition boasts vast amounts of new andrevised material, unmatched in breadth and depth by any other bookon the subject. It includes:

  • Easily accessible, self-contained contributions by over thirtyexperts

  • Five completely new chapters and hundreds of additionalpages

  • A cutting-edge look at applications in nanoelectronics

  • Coverage of the formation of nanoclusters and quantum dots usingscanning tunneling microscopy (STM)

  • An important discussion of the physical properties of metal thinfilms

  • Chapters devoted to methods, tools, control, and environmentalissues

  • And much more

A must-have for anyone in electroplating, including technicians,platers, plating researchers, and metal finishers, ModernElectroplating, Fifth Edition is also an excellent reference forelectrical engineers and researchers in the automotive, datastorage, and medical industries.

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.

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 batteryapplicationsAdvanced cathode materials for lithium-ion batteriesMetal fluorosulphates capable of doubling the energy density oflithium-ion batteriesEfforts to develop lithium-air batteriesAlternative 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.

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