Due to the increasing demand for power generation and the limited nature of fossil fuels, new initiatives for energy development based on electrochemical energy conversion systems are springing up around the world. Introduction to Electrochemical Science and Engineering describes the basic operational principles for a number of growing electrochemical engineering-related technologies, including fuel cells, electrolyzers, and flow batteries.

Inspired by the author's more than ten years of experience teaching undergraduate electrochemistry-related courses at Penn State University, this essential text:

Ensures a fundamental knowledge of the core concepts of electrochemical science and engineering, such as electrochemical cells, electrolytic conductivity, electrode potential, and current-potential relations related to a variety of electrochemical systemsDevelops the initial skills needed to understand an electrochemical experiment and successfully evaluate experimental data without visiting a laboratoryProvides more than 360 conceptual and numerical problems distributed over nine quizzes and nine video-based assignmentsContains a number of illustrative case studies related to novel electrochemical energy conversion systemsPromotes an appreciation of the capabilities and applications of key electrochemical techniques

Solutions manual and electronic figure files available with qualifying course adoption

Introduction to Electrochemical Science and Engineering is an ideal textbook for undergraduate engineering and science students and those readers in need of introductory-level content. Furthermore, experienced readers will find this book useful for solidifying their electrochemical background.

"This textbook is the first true introduction to modern electrochemical science and engineering that is directed at senior level undergraduates in engineering disciplines. The wide ground covered includes both an introduction to fundamental electrochemistry and its application to understanding electrochemical power storage and conversion devices and corrosion. It fills an important gap that has been missing in the field and will be an excellent resource for students and instructors alike."
- Prof. Matthew M. Mench, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA

"... takes readers on a journey from fundamental electrochemistry to understanding modern electrochemical energy conversion systems (fuel cells, electrolyzers, batteries) and economically important phenomena such as corrosion. The book is distinctive in making it possible for undergraduate students to learn electrochemical science and engineering in one semester. This is facilitated by quizzes, videos of laboratory experiments, and video-based assignments that accompany the text. The book can also be used by graduate students, industry professionals, and researchers who have not studied electrochemistry but need to work in related areas."
-Andre Anderko, OLI Systems, Inc., Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, USA

"There is a profound clarity of concepts and completeness of the material covered. S. Lvov is making the connection of electrochemistry with physical chemistry principles by involving a rigorous treatment of ionic equilibria and kinetics."
-Vladimiros G. Papangelakis, University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada
