About this book

Reference Electrodes are a crucial part of any electrochemical system, yet an up-to-date and comprehensive handbook is long overdue. Here, an experienced team of electrochemists provides an in-depth source of information and data for the proper choice and construction of reference electrodes. This includes all kinds of applications such as aqueous and non-aqueous solutions, ionic liquids, glass melts, solid electrolyte systems, and membrane electrodes. Advanced technologies such as miniaturized, conducting-polymer-based, screen-printed or disposable reference electrodes are also covered. Essential know-how is clearly presented and illustrated with almost 200 figures.

Table of contents (15 chapters)


“This book provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art collection of current knowledge about reference electrodes. … this book provides an overwhelming survey in theoretical and practical aspects of currently applied reference electrodes. Due to its compactness it is a very helpful text- and reference book, suitable for students and professionals performing electrochemical measurements.” (Ralf Bäßler, Materials and Corrosion, Vol. 66 (11), 2015)

“It is the first complete and exhaustive book on reference electrodes … . It takes into consideration all possible media in which electrochemistry is plausible, treating the topic deeply and clearly. … It is or should also be in the libraries of all institutions dealing with chemistry, as well as in those of teachers, well accessible to students for use in the frame of both application and theorycourses.” (Renato Seeber, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 405, 2014)

“The “Handbook of Reference Electrodes’ can be considered as a fundamental text which provides the most recent data and information on this most crucial instrument in electrochemical measurements. This makes the book attractive not only for anyone working in electrochemistry, from the technician to the researcher, but also for lecturers of general, inorganic, organic chemistry as well as of biochemistry. … it is hoped that it will help to produce reliable potential data for a long time to come.” (Antonio Doménech-Carbó, Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry, Vol. 17, 2013)
