Electrochemistry plays an important role in preserving our cultural heritage. For the first time this has been documented in the present volume. Coverage includes both electrochemical processes such as corrosion and electroanalytical techniques allowing to analyse micro- and nanosamples from works of art or archaeological finds. While this volume is primarily aimed at electrochemists and analytical chemists, it also contains relevant information for conservators, restorers, and archaeologists.

From the reviews:

"This monograph is most suitable for electrochemists wanting to learn about applications in archeology and art conservation. ... chapters are written at a lower-division undergraduate level and are easily accessible to a general educated public. ... Summing Up: Recommended. ... upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty with a background in electrochemistry." (L. D. Frame, Choice, Vol. 47 (4), December, 2009)

"A valuable and well-prepared book for analysts, archaeologists, and art historians. It is written by competent authors with considerable electroanalytical experience and knowledge of material science and who are working practically in the field of application of chemical analysis for archaeometry. The book is well illustrated from the point of view of both the fundamentals of the methods discussed and also numerous applications. There are numerous citations to original papers published in scientific journals ... which is very useful in searching for the original literature."--- (Marek Trojanowicz, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 397, June, 2010)

"This new monograph provides a well-written insight into a field of practical electrochemistry of fascinating samples. ... give a very helpful overview with many examples and references. ... provide a valuable resource to art analysts and conservationists with a broad range of information accumulated into a unique single resource. ... In conclusion, this book is written in an approachable style to encourage novices in electrochemistry into the field, and it is likely to catalyse new interactions at the interface between art conservation and electrochemistry."--- (Frank Marken, Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry, Vol. 15, 2011)
