not yet rated|write a review
This primer seeks to provide an introduction to the science of equilibrium electrochemistry; specifically it addresses the topics of electrode potentials and their applications. It builds on a knowledge of elementary thermodynamics giving the reader an appreciation of the origin of electrodepotentials and shows how these are used to deduce a wealth of chemically important information and data such as equilibrium constants, the free energy, enthalpy and entrophy changes of chemical reactions, activity coefficients, the selective sensing of ions. The emphasis throughout is onunderstanding the foundations of the subject and how it may be used to study problems of chemical interest. The Primer is directed towards students in the early years of their university courses in chemistry and allied subjects; accordingly, the mathematical aspects of the subject have beenminimized as far as is consistent with clarity.

Editorial Reviews

`'...well produced book...Its five chapters cover clearly and efficiently the material...One advantage of this book is that it...follows the IUPAC recommendations...the conventions about the conventional writing of cells and cell reactions are carefuly and correctly explained and thepresentation is logically developed. The need to worry about activity coefficients is well presented without being overburdened with algebra,...There are a few key references and some useful problems and worked examples. I am sure that undergraduates will find this treatment most helpful, and theauthors are to be congratualted in providing it.'Roger Parsons
