    Editorial Reviews

    “After reading this book, I am convinced that I held a very important work in my hands … The book is recommended particularly to researchers working in nanoscience, secondly to Ph.D. students wanting to get more insight in nanotechnology especially in the electrochemistry branch and to each chemist to refresh his/her knowledge on heterogeneous catalysis including electrocatalysis.”
    —Imre Kiricsi, University of Szeged, Hungary, in React. Kinet. Catal. Lett., Vol. 82, No. 1
    “This book will be an immense source of advanced knowledge for research laboratories working in the fields of nanomaterial, fuel cell, practical and fundamental research on heterogeneous catalysis … . Contributions from 52 authors who are globally well known in their areas will enable the reader to grasp the vast interdisciplinary context very easily. The volume is recommended  … to individuals, libraries, government organizations and industries … .”
