Elements of Molecular and Biomolecular Electrochemistry: An Electrochemical Approach to Electron Transfer Chemistry (0471445738) cover image
This book is based on the George Fisher Baker Lecture given by Jean-Michel Savéant at Cornell University in Fall 2002.
* The first book focusing on molecular electrochemistry
* Relates to other fields, including photochemistry and biochemistry
* Outlines clearly the connection between concepts, experimental illustrations, proofs and supporting methods
* Appendixes to provide rigorous demonstrations to prevent an overload of algebra in the main text
* Applications-oriented, focused on analyzing the results obtained rather than the methodology
