Specialist Periodical Reports present comprehensive and critical reviews of the current literature, with contributions from across the globe, providing the reader with an informed digest of the most important research currently carried out in the field. Re-launched in 2012 with a new editorial team (Compton and Wadhawan), this latest volume covers a broad range of topics, all with an emphasis on the nano aspects of electrochemistry. Aside from the applied chapters, contributions have also been submitted which examine eletrochemistry in specific regions; China and India are covered in this volume
Understanding voltammetry : simulation of electrode processes by R. G Compton( )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first textbook in the field of electrochemistry that will teach experimental electrochemists how to carry out simulation of electrode processes. Processes at both macro- and micro-electrodes are examined and the simulation of both diffusion-only and diffusion-convection processes are addressed. The simulation of processes with coupled homogeneous kinetics and at microelectrode arrays are further discussed. Over the course of the book the reader's understanding is developed to the point where they will be able to undertake and solve research-level problems. The book leads the reader through from a basic understanding of the principles underlying electrochemical simulation to the development of computer programs which describe the complex processes found in voltammetry. This is the third book in the "Understanding Voltammetry" series, published with Imperial College Press and written by the Compton group. Other books in the series include "Understanding Voltammetry", written by Richard G. Compton with Craig Banks and also "Understanding Voltammetry: Problems and Solutions" (2012) written by Richard G. Compton with Christopher Batchelor-McAuley and Edmund Dickinson. These are and continue to be successful textbooks for graduates in electrochemistry and electroanalytical studies

Applications of kinetic modelling by R. G Compton( )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 37 is concerned with the use and role of modelling in chemical kinetics and seeks to show the interplay of theory or simulation with experiment in a diversity of physico-chemical areas in which kinetics measurements provide significant physical insight. Areas of application covered within the volume include electro- and interfacial chemistry, physiology, biochemistry, solid state chemistry and chemical engineering. A leading contributor to this general area has been Professor W. John Albery, FRS, to whom the contributors and editors dedicate this book
Kinetic models of catalytic reactions by G. S Yablonskii( Book )

12 editions published in 1991 in English and Hungarian and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book has been written by a group of mathematicians and chemists whose common interest is in the complex dynamics of catalytic reactions. Based on developments in mathematical chemistry, a general theory is described that allows the investigation of the relationships between the kinetic characteristics of complex reactions and their detailed reaction mechanism. Furthermore, a comprehensive analysis is made of some typical mechanism of catalytic reactions, in particular for the oxidation of carbon monoxide on platinum metals. In fact, the book presents <Q>three kinetics</Q>: (a) de

Electron tunneling in chemistry : chemical reactions over large distances by R. F Khaĭrutdinov( Book )

10 editions published in 1989 in English and Hungarian and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Volume 30, an attempt is made to consider comprehensively both theoretical and experimental data that have been obtained to date on electron tunneling reactions involving chemical compounds of various classes, and to discuss the role played by these reactions in different areas of chemistry. The discussion of the above problem is preceded by a review of data on tunneling phenomena in nuclear physics, atomic physics, solid-state physics, as well as on the tunneling effects in chemistry that go beyond the framework of the main subject of this monograph. This review is included to acquaint the reader with the role of tunneling phenomena in physics and chemistry as a whole, to show how diversified the kingdom of tunneling phenomena is, and to see more distinctly the similarities and the differences between electron tunneling in chemical reactions and other tunnel phenomena

Mechanism and kinetics of addition polymerizations by Miloslav Kučera( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents an up-to-date survey of knowledge concerning addition type polymerizations. It contains nine chapters, each of which covers a particular basic term. Whenever necessary, the phenomena are discussed from the viewpoint of both stationary and non-stationary state of radical, ionic (i.e. anionic and cationic) and coordination polymerization. Special attention has been paid to the propagation process. It provides not only a general overview but also information on important special cases (theoretical conditions of propagation, influence of external factors, controlled propagation, copolymerization, mechanism of various propagation types, etc.). The book is arranged according to the basic steps in chain reactions, which is a novel approach in a monograph on this topic. It facilitates the identification of common features of various polymerization types which may appear quite different. This useful, comprehensive text should prove invaluable to all those involved in the field of macromolecular chemistry. It will also be of interest to all chemists who, beside the profound study of their own field, are looking for interdisciplinary liaison points
Foundations of physical chemistry by Charles P Lawrence( Book )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This series of short texts provides accessible accounts of a range of essential topics in chemistry. Written with the needs of the student in mind, the Oxford Chemistry Primers offer just the right level of detail for undergraduate study, and will be invaluable as a source of material commonly presented in lecture courses yet not adequately covered in existing texts. All the basic principles and facts in a particular area are presented in a clear and straightforward style, to produce concise yet comprehensive accounts of topics covered in both core and specialist courses." "Increasingly, there is a gap between the fundamentals taught at school and at university. This Primer, written jointly by a school teacher and university lecturers is ideally suited to the needs of students at the school/university interface by taking material familiar from school and linking it with a selection of ideas that will be encountered in the freshman year. As well as stimulating pre-university students it will provide a sound basis for university courses in chemistry and allied subjects." "The early chapters cover the structure of atoms, ions, and molecules, reactivity, kinetics, and equilibria. The final chapter gives an insight into more advanced areas, drawing on examples from the outside world. Mathematical aspects of these subjects have been minimized as far as possible."--Jacket
Understanding voltammetry by Richard G Compton( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In comparison to the first edition, two new chapters -- transport via migration and nanoelectrochemistry -- are added. Minor changes and updates are also made throughout the textbook to facilitate enhanced understanding and greater clarity of exposition. --Back Cover
Understanding voltammetry by Richard G Compton( Book )

38 editions published between 2007 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This textbook considers how to go about designing, explaining and interpreting experiments centered around various forms of voltammetry (cyclic, microelectrode, hydrodynamic, and so on). The reader is assumed to have a knowledge to Masters level of physical chemistry but no exposure to electrochemistry in general, or voltammetry in particular. While the book is designed to 'stand alone', references to important research papers are given to provide an entry into the literature." "The book gives clear introductions to the theories of electron transfer and of diffusion in its early chapters. These are developed to interpret voltammetric experiments at macro-electrodes before considering microelectrode behavior. A subsequent chapter introduces convection and describes hydrodynamic electrodes. Later chapters describe the voltammetric measurement of homogeneous kinetics, the study of adsorption on electrodes and the use of voltammetry for electroanalysis."--Jacket
