This book serves as a reference for engineers, scientists, and students concerned with the use of materials in applications where reliability and resistance to corrosion are important. It updates the coverage of its predecessor, including coverage of: corrosion rates of steel in major river systems and atmospheric corrosion rates, the corrosion behavior of materials such as weathering steels and newer stainless alloys, and the corrosion behavior and engineering approaches to corrosion control for nonmetallic materials.

New chapters include: high-temperature oxidation of metals and alloys, nanomaterials, and dental materials, anodic protection. Also featured are chapters dealing with standards for corrosion testing, microbiological corrosion, and electrochemical noise.

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.

The classic book on corrosion science and engineering—now in a valuable new edition

The ability to prevent failures by managing corrosion is one of the main global challengesof the twenty-first century. However, most practicing engineers and technologists have only a basic understanding of how they can actively participate in this urgent economic and environmental issue. Now, students and professionals can turn to this newly revised edition of the trusted Corrosion and Corrosion Control for coverage of the latest developments in the field, including advances in knowledge, new alloys for corrosion control, and industry developments in response to public demand.

This Fourth Edition presents an updated overview of the essential aspects of corrosion science and engineering that underpin the tools and technologies used for managing corrosion, enhancing reliability, and preventing failures. Although the basic organization of the book remains unchanged from the previous edition, this new update includes:

An introduction to new topics, including the element of risk management in corrosion engineering and new advanced alloys for controlling corrosion

Expanded discussions on electrochemical polarization, predicting corrosion using thermodynamics, steel reinforcements in concrete, and applications of corrosion control technologies in automotive, nuclear, and other industries

A stronger emphasis on environmental concerns and regulations in the context of their impact on corrosion engineering

A discussion of the challenge of reliability in nuclear reactors; stainless steels; the concept of critical pitting temperature; and information on critical pitting potential (CPP)

Complemented with numerous examples to help illustrate important points, Corrosion and Corrosion Control, Fourth Edition enables readers to fully understand corrosion and its control and, in turn, help reduce massive economic and environmental loss. It is a must-read for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in engineering and materials science courses, as well as for engineers, technologists, researchers, and other professionals who need information on this timely topic.

Sheds new light on the significance of electrodeinhomogeneity and electrochemical heterogeneity

A major contribution to the field of electrochemistry, thisbook—based on a thorough review of the literature and authorYongjun Tan's twenty years of pioneering research—examineselectrochemical heterogeneity and its effects on non-uniformelectrode processes. The book focuses on localized corrosion,uneven electrodeposition, and non-uniform electrodissolution.Readers will learn all the core fundamentals, experimental methods,and engineering aspects of localized corrosion and other importantheterogeneous electrode processes. In particular, readers willlearn core methods to quickly calculate corrosion rates and studyelectrode inhomogeneity and electrochemical heterogeneity.

Heterogeneous Electrode Processes and Localized Corrosionbegins with a review of homogeneous electrode models and uniformcorrosion measurements and then explores probing electrodeinhomogeneity, electrochemical heterogeneity, and localizedcorrosion. Next, the book examines:

Visualizing localized corrosion using electrochemicallyintegrated multi-electrode arraysMeasuring thermodynamic and kinetic parameters of localizedcorrosion processesCharacterizing inhomogeneity and localized corrosion on coatedelectrode surfacesDesigning experiments to study localized corrosion and itsinhibition in inhomogeneous mediaSensing localized electrodeposition and electrodissolutionExploring versatile heterogeneous electrode processes

Throughout the book, there are case studies with maps thatillustrate key aspects of heterogeneous electrode processes. Inaddition, the author provides plenty of examples that enablereaders to fully grasp core concepts of electrochemicalheterogeneity and its relationship to non-uniform electrodeprocesses.

Reviewing the experimental findings presented in this book,electrochemists will gain a better appreciation and understandingof the fundamental significance of electrode inhomogeneity andelectrochemical heterogeneity.
