Product Description


′Hamann et al. have successfully stripped away the stayed image of the subject and revealed all of the exciting aspects.
"Electrochemistry" really is "the Full Monty"!′
(The Electrochemistry Newsletter)

′Physical chemists will appreciate the style of the book... This 423 page book is an interesting and brave attempt by experienced workers to bring together old an newer aspects of physical electrochemistry at a reasonable price. It should prove useful reading to many research workers in this and related fields.′
(Corrosion Management)

′This textbook... is scientifically up to date and thorough, but still didactically skilful and lucid.′
(Documentation Tech/Sci, HBLavoisier)

Well presented and illustrated the 423 pages will be a most valuable source of referenced information for the engineer who is involved with aspects of electrochemistry applications and its many interfaces.
(Materials & Manufacture)

Aimed mainly at undergraduate students of chemistry, this excellent text by German and British authors covers solution electrochemistry; kinetcs; fused salts; industrial electrochemistry; and cells and electroanalysis. It is well illustrated and fully referenced.
(Aslib Book Guide)

Anyone – from advanced undergraduate up – wanting to be brought up to date in these fields will find the text highly useful.
(Times Higher Educational Supp.)

HASH(0x911ebe1c) out of 5 stars This is a REFERENCE text 2 Oct. 2013

If you have a class that requires this textbook, drop the class.

This is the second worst textbook I have had the displeasure of every purchasing, and it only beats out the first by a slim margin because the other than more typographical errors than this.

You don't -learn- when reading this textbook. The information isn't structured in a way that is conducive to learning. This is the kind of textbook you look at after you understand everything within it, and want to refresh your memory on that one equation you suddenly find yourself needing, without explanation of its background nor in many cases the constants that make it up.

Unless you have an absolutely stupendous teacher, in which case the purchasing of this book is pretty much worthless sans the chapter problems that might be assigned, you will NOT learn anything.

HASH(0x91016eb8) out of 5 stars Terrible Book 23 Jun. 2014
By Taylor Cain - Published on Amazon.com

As one of the other reviews has stated, this is a terrible book if you want to learn electrochemistry. Electrochemical Methods: Fundamentals and Applications by Bard and Faulkner is a vastly superior text book and explains concepts much clearer than Hamann. Hamann does go a little bit more in depth into thermodynamic concepts but Bard and Faulkner is the way to go.

A good book if you want to know a little more application of electrochemistry. It doesn't have a nitty gritty detail of theory but it was helpful for me to get ideas about some practical applications of the area.

HASH(0x90a0c144) out of 5 stars A good textbook for undergraduates 18 Aug. 2010

I use this textbook for teaching an undergraduate electrochemistry class. The text covers most of the necessary topics and recommends IUPAC quantities, units, and symbols.

This book explains a lot, fill with countless of interesting formulas. However, some of them are a bit confusing to me. But overall, the best echem book i have ever had.
