The reader is assumed to have knowledge up to a Master's level of physical chemistry, but no exposure to electrochemistry in general, or voltammetry in particular. The problems range in difficulty from senior undergraduate to research level, and develop important practical approaches in voltammetry. The problems presented in the earlier chapters focus on the fundamental theories of thermodynamics, electron transfer and diffusion.
Voltammetric experiments and their analysis are then considered, including extensive problems on both microelectrode and macroelectrode voltammetry. Convection, hydrodynamic electrodes, homogenous kinetics, adsorption and electroanalytical applications are discussed in the later chapters, as well as problems on two rapidly developing fields of voltammetry: weakly supported media and nanoscale electrodes. This book provides an overview of biosensors based on amperometry, conductimetry, potentiometry, square-wave voltammetry, impedance, and electrochemiluminescence and describes the use of ultramicroelectrodes for the real-time monitoring and understanding of exocytosis.
Areas of particular interest are the use of silver and gold nanoparticles for signal amplification, photocurrent transduction, and aptamer design. Moreover, advanced insights in the innovative concept of self-powered biosensors derived from biofuel cells are also discussed. Author s : Alejandro A.
