Basic Electrochemistry for Biotechnology

Understand the basics of a thriving interdisciplinary research field

Microbial electrochemistry is a subfield of bioelectrochemistry which concerns interactions between microbial organisms and electrically active surfaces such as electrodes. Its growth as a subject of research has been rapid in recent years, and its technological applications are many, particularly as the race to find sustainable organic energy sources accelerates.

Basic Electrochemistry for Biotechnology offers an accessible overview of this interdisciplinary subject and its potential applications. Moving smoothly from the general to the specific, it offers both fundamental principles and some of the most relevant specific examples, such as biofilm electrodes, microbial fuel cells or microbial electrosynthesis cells, making it the ideal choice for building a working knowledge of this exciting new field. Its solid foundation of microbial electrochemical technologies also serves as a starting point for a wide range of applied research areas.

Basic Electrochemistry for Biotechnology readers will also find:

  • Carefully designed artistic illustrations
  • Hands-on exercises throughout to facilitate entry into laboratory work
  • Numerous illustrative examples and calculations designed to demonstrate and reinforce key principles

Basic Electrochemistry for Biotechnology is the perfect point of entry into this growing field for both students and researchers.
