Author Information

Series Editors:
Prof. Allen J. Bard: Born December 18, 1933, Prof. Bard received his early education in the public schools of New York City and attended The City College of NY (B.Sc.,1955). He did his graduate work at Harvard Univ. with J.J. Lingane (MA, 1956; PhD, 1958) in electroanalytical chemistry. In 1958 he joined the faculty of The Univ.of Texas at Austin where he currently holds the Norman Hackerman/Welch Regents' Chair in Chemistry. His research interests have been in the application of electrochemical methods to the study of chemical problems and include investigations in electro-organic chemistry, photoelectrochemistry, electrogenerated chemiluminescence, and electroanalytical chemistry. He has published three books (Electrochemical Methods, with Larry Faulkner, Integrated Chemical Systems, and Chemical Equilibrium) and over 600 papers and chapters while editing the series Electroanalytical Chemistry (21 volumes) and the Encyclopedia of the Electrochemistry of the Elements (16 volumes) plus co-editing the monograph, Standard Potentials in Aqueous Solution. He is currently editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Chem. Society. The ISI listing of the "50 most cited chemists from 1981-1997" ranks Prof. Bard at number 13 (taken from a total of 627,871 chemists surveyed).
Prof. Martin Stratmann: Born 20 April 1954, studied chemistry at the Ruhr Univ.Bochum and received his diploma in 1980. He finished his PhD in 1982 at the Max Planck Inst.(MPI) für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf. His professorship in physical chemistry followed in 1992 at the Univ.of Düsseldorf with electrochemical studies on metal surfaces covered with ultrathin electrolyte layers. In 1994 he took over the Chair in Corrosion Sci.and Surface Engin.at the Univ.of Erlangen and since 2000 has been a scientific member of the MPI and director at the MPI für Eisenforschung Düsseldorf, heading a department of interface chemistry and surface engineering. His research interests concentrate on corrosion related electrochemistry, in particular with emphasis on microscopic aspects and in-situ spectroscopy, electrochemistry at buried metal/polymer interfaces - an area where he pioneered novel electrochemical techniques - atmospheric corrosion, adhesion and surface chemistry of reactive metal substrates. He has published more than 150 papers and is co-editor of Steel Research and Materials and Corrosion.

"…contains more modern accounts of specialized electrochemical topics that have not heretofore been consolidated in a single source…strongly compliments others in the series and provides reliable, updated information…this volume is excellent…has definite value as an important reference resource..." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 126, No. 5)

"In summary, this text is particularly strong in describing modern theoretical constructs for modeling of electrochemical kinetics and mass transport...Overall this volume strongly complements others in the series and provides reliable, updated information of electrochemical kinetics, energetics, and mass transport. The quality of presentation of this volume is excellent, with first-rate formatting, indexing, and referencing (as current as 2004). This text has definite value as an important reference source for researchers, scientists, and graduate students interested in the broad field of electrochemistry."
--Keith J. Stevenson, University of Texas at Austin, J. Am. Chem. Soc. 5/04
