by Richard C. Alkire, Electrocatalysis Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Electrocatalysis books, Catalysts speed up a chemical reaction or allow for reactions to take place that would not otherwise occur. The chemical nature of a catalyst and its structure are crucial for interactions with reaction intermediates. An electrocatalyst is used in an electrochemical reaction, for example in a fuel cell to produce electricity. In this case, reaction rates are also dependent on the electrode potential and the structure of the electrical double-layer. This work provides a valuable overview of this rapidly developing field by focusing on the aspects that drive the research of today and tomorrow. Key topics are discussed by leading experts, making this book a must-have for many scientists of the fi eld with backgrounds in different disciplines, including chemistry, physics, biochemistry, engineering as well as surface and materials science. This book is volume XIV in the series "Advances in Electrochemical Sciences and Engineering".
by Nicolas Alonso-Vante, Fundamentals Of Electrocatalyst Materials And Interfacial Characterization Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fundamentals Of Electrocatalyst Materials And Interfacial Characterization books, This book addresses some essential topics in the science of energy converting devices emphasizing recent aspects of nano-derived materials in the application for the protection of the environment, storage, and energy conversion. The aim, therefore, is to provide the basic background knowledge. The electron transfer process and structure of the electric double layer and the interaction of species with surfaces and the interaction, reinforced by DFT theory for the current and incoming generation of fuel cell scientists to study the interaction of the catalytic centers with their supports. The chief focus of the chapters is on materials based on precious and non-precious centers for the hydrogen electrode, the oxygen electrode, energy storage, and in remediation applications, where the common issue is the rate-determining step in multi-electron charge transfer processes in electrocatalysis. These approaches are used in a large extent in science and technology, so that each chapter demonstrates the connection of electrochemistry, in addition to chemistry, with different areas, namely, surface science, biochemistry, chemical engineering, and chemical physics.

by Konstantinos N. Papadopoulos, Food Chemistry Research Developments Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Food Chemistry Research Developments books, Food chemistry is the study of chemical processes and interactions of all biological and non-biological components of foods. The biological substances include such items as meat, poultry, lettuce, beer, and milk as examples. It is similar to biochemistry in its main components such as carbohydrates, lipids, and protein, but it also includes areas such as water, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, food additives, flavours, and colours. This discipline also encompasses how products change under certain food processing techniques and ways either to enhance or to prevent them from happening. An example of enhancing a process would be to encourage fermentation of dairy products with lactic acid; an example of a preventing process would be stopping the Maillard reaction on the surface of freshly cut Red Delicious apples whether by hand or mechanical methods. This book presents the recent research from around the world in this field.
by Horst-Günter Rubahn, Laser Applications In Surface Science And Technology Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Laser Applications In Surface Science And Technology books, Lasers are becoming increasingly important in surface science, both for the diagnostic evaluation and the processing of surfaces, for example, higher harmonic generation for diagnosis and the widespread use of laser surface microstructuring and annealing for processing. The physics behind such applications might be described in some cases by simple heating and melting processes, but can also include much more complex phenomena such as plasma generation or elementary collective surface excitations. Laser Applications in Surface Science and Technology provides an overview of the different techniques, discusses the principles behind them and gives a concise description of laser-induced and laser-detected processes on surfaces. Recent developments in the field such as nonlinear surface spectroscopies and the interactions of ultrashort pulses with materials, are also introduced. Invaluable reading for postgraduate students and research scientists across a wide range of disciplines including: physics, chemistry, electronic engineering and materials science.
