"The text is certainly comprehensive in its coverage, ranging from ionic mobilities and liquid junction potentials, through redox electrochemistry of proteins and surface spectroscopy of electrocatalytic reactions, to fuel cells, batteries and gas sensors." (Chromatographia, February 2010)

"The renowned authorial team emphasize application in energy technology while covering the physicalchemical fundamentals, modern methods of investigation, electrochemical analysis and production methods, as well as fuel cells and micro-and nanotechnology." (Chimie Nouvelle, March 2010)"Both classical contents and modern developments of electrochemistry have been incorporated in this textbook to educate young modern electrochemists … .A very solid and useful textbook. I highly recommend it to students and researchers." (The Higher Education Academy Physical Sciences Centre, December 2008)

"…an excellent introduction to the physical-chemical aspects of electrochemistry…and is strongly recommended." (CHOICE, December 2007)
