Modern Aspects of Electrochemistry No. 15

This volume contains five chapters covering four topics of current research interest: splitting of water, lithium batteries, intercalation, and fundamental aspects of electrode processes. Two chapters are devoted to splitting of water. The first chapter, by Gutmann and Murphy, presents a comprehensi...
