One Line Description
The book comprehensively covers the hot topic of electrode materials by detailing novel applications in biosensors, efficient batteries,fuel cells, energy storage and conversion systems.

Scientists, researchers, and technologists working on advanced electrode materials; industrial sectors intending to harvest energy technology employing state-of-the-art electrode materials techniques; PhD and master level courses on electrode materials processing, properties and applications in the chemistry, physics, biotechnology, materials science, energy environmental and biomedical engineering.

In this book, a narrative is presented of recent advances in electrode materials and their novel applications, which are a cross section of advanced materials. Electrochemistry is a widely used branch of chemistry which combines chemical and electrical effects. It provides the advantages of high sensitivity, high performance and low cost. In electrochemistry, a well-designed electrode material is the key to many applications. The book, therefore, summarizes different electrodes used in various fields for enhancing the quality of electrochemical systems.
Advanced Electrode Materials is divided into two sections: State-of-the-art electrode materials; and engineering of applied electrode materials. Amongst the chapters, readers will find overviews of electrocatalysis for energy conversion in view of bionanotechnology; surfactant-free materials and polyoxometalates through the concepts of biosensors to renewable energy applications; mesoporous carbon, diamond, conducting polymers and tungsten oxide/conducting polymer-based electrodes and hybrid systems. Numerous approaches are reviewed for lithium batteries, fuel cells, the design and construction of anode for microbial fuel cells including phosphate polyanion electrodes, electrocatalytic materials, fuel cell reactions, conducting polymer based hybrid nanocomposites and advanced nanomaterials.
