About this book


Square-wave voltammetry is a technique readily available to every researcher, scientist, engineer and practitioner applying modern electrochemical measurement systems. It is of beneficial use in analytical applications and in fundamental studies of electrode mechanisms. But the optimised exploitation of this technique is only possible for those with a detailed knowledge of signal generation and of  the thermodynamics and kinetics involved. This volume, written by three distiguished experts, systematically delivers the complete and in-depth information that enables both researchers and users of square-wave voltammetry to apply this technique effectively. Square-Wave Voltammetry also offers an appendix on mathematical modeling and a chapter on the most important electrode mechanisms which briefly reviews the underlying theory and numerical formulae intrinsic for simulating experiments with popular software tools , e.g. Mathcad (R).

Bibliographic information


From the reviews:

"This book provides a wide collection of data for the description of diverse tendencies that characterize several electrochemical reactions analyzed by SWV. … In summary, the book is highly recommended for researchers and research students who are interested in working with SWV. The authors are some of the foremost experts on the computation and experimental studies about this technique … . the authors provide an excellent introduction for anybody interested in the simulation of voltammetric curves." (Fernando Garay, Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry, Vol. 13, 2009)
