In Chapter 3, `Anodic Materials for Electrooxidation of Alcohols in Alkaline Media', Sadia Kabir and Alexey Serov have produced a well-rounded overview on the topic that would be useful for people just starting in the field. This chapter does well in explaining the reasons for the benefits in electrochemical performance seen by combining Pt and Pd with different materials rather than just quoting the higher performance. In Chapter 4, `Newer Polymer Electrolytes and Electrocatalysts for Direct Alcohol Fuel Cells', P. Sridhar, S. D. Bhat and A. K. Sahu have produced a good summary of recent advances in membranes and electrocatalysts for direct alcohol fuel cells (DAFC). The chapter is well structured with the material being broken down into proton conducting membranes, anion conducting membranes and catalysts for DAFC. Overall the chapter is a good review on the subject matter and would be useful reference material for people interested in this topic. This book gives a good feel for the type of areas in which electrochemistry can be used to develop the understanding of electrocatalysis and materials development. While this book does not give a detailed review of the literature for any specific field of study it does provide an interesting sample of papers across the field however it is successful in providing a glimpse into the key topics and themes currently receiving the most attention. -- John Blake, Johnson Matthey * Johnson Matthey Technol.
