The critically acclaimed guide to the principles, techniques, and instruments of electroanalytical chemistry-now expanded and revised

Joseph Wang, internationally renowned authority on electroanalytical techniques, thoroughly revises his acclaimed book to reflect the rapid growth the field has experienced in recent years. He substantially expands the theoretical discussion while providing comprehensive coverage of the latest advances through late 1999, introducing such exciting new topics as self-assembled monolayers, DNA biosensors, lab-on-a-chip, detection for capillary electrophoresis, single molecule detection, and sol-gel surface modification. Along with numerous references from the current literature and new worked-out examples, Analytical Electrochemistry, Second Edition offers clear, reader-friendly explanations of the fundamental principles of electrochemical processes as well as important insight into the potential of electroanalysis for problem solving in a wide range of fields, from clinical diagnostics to environmental science. Key topics include:

  • The basics of electrode reactions and the structure of the interfacial region
  • Tools for elucidating electrode reactions and high-resolution surface characterization
  • An overview of finite-current controlled potential techniques
  • Electrochemical instrumentation and electrode materials
  • Principles of potentiometric measurements and ion-selective electrodes
  • Chemical sensors, including biosensors, gas sensors, solid-state devices, and sensor arrays
