Electrocatalysis applications are employed in a large number of industries worldwide, ranging from old technologies such as galvanoplasty to the most up-to-date deployments involving ultracapacitators. Recognizing electrocatalysis as a useful interfacial approach to a dynamic interdisciplinary science, Electrocatalysis: Computational, Experimental, and Industrial Aspects focuses on important developments in the field that are the most relevant to new technologies.

Gathering the experiences of a collection of experts who have worked on the basic principles of electrocatalysis as it applies to theoretical physics and theoretical chemistry, the book gives readers a clear view of the problems inside electrocatalytic reactions, presenting both the limitations of electrocatalysis in the laboratory along with its possibilities in industry.

Topics discussed include:

  • The current uses of electrocatalysis

  • Future perspectives on the field

  • Surface physical properties and surface relaxation on noble and non-noble surfaces

  • The quantum nature of the electron transfer

  • Müller-Calandra, Srinivasan-Gileadi, and instantaneous nucleation-growth overlap models

  • The production, storage, use, and delivery of hydrogen in industrial electrochemistry

  • Theoretical approaches to current distribution on rough surfaces

  • The use of microradiology to study electrodeposition

  • Principles of electrochemical engineering, fuel cell reactors, and electrocatalytic reactor design

  • Electrocatalysis of electroless plating

  • Fundamental aspects of the corrosion of metals

The book reviews four main electrochemical processes (hydrogen production, oxygen electrochemistry, energy conversion/production, and fine electroplating). Surface modified non-noble metal substrates and natural minerals as well as noble
