Modern Aspects of Electrochemistry

The present collection of articles follows the arrangement used in previous volumes. Solutions are discussed first, surfaces and double­ layers second, electrode kinetics third, and then the applied subjects. The introduction of spectroscopic methods to electrochemistry is well exemplified by NMR st...
