Kosuke Izutsu received his B.Sc. (1956), M.Sc. (1958) and D.Sc. (1961) degrees from Kyoto University and worked under Professor I.M. Kolthoff at the University of Minnesota from 1961 to 1963. He became an Assistant Professor at Kyoto University in 1963 and moved to Shinshu University, Matsumoto in 1972 as an Associate Professor. He was promoted to Professor of Analytical Chemistry, Shinshu University in 1975 and has been an Emeritus Professor there since 1999. His research interest lies in electroanalytical chemistry in nonaqueous solutions and he has published over 100 original papers and many review articles on the subject. He has served as the Chairman of the IUPAC Commission on Electroanalytical Chemistry and as the President of the Japan Society for Analytical Chemistry.

"It is a book that demands to be used by the intended audience. It is well built for the job. With an exhaustive list of valuable and highly pertinent references at the end of every chapter, the book is hugely and surprisingly comprehensive for the author's intended purpose and the users' requirements, covering vast tracts of areas of knowledge that we need to possess on nonaqueous solutions. There is little excuse not to buy it." (Current Engineering Practice, 2010)
