"This book provides an innovative and thought-provoking view of electrochemical processes in nanofabrication. A comprehensive overview of the field is complemented by focused coverage of niche specialist topics involving metallic, oxide and polymeric materials in diverse combinations and complex interfacial architectures. A pedagogical approach to the central fundamental concepts allows the non-specialist to appreciate the significance of some perceptive subsequent analytical critique. Excellent use of illustrative material assists appreciation of the synergy between the novel fundamental science and its application in practical devices. This is an excellent book for those working in the field and others considering entering it."
Prof. A. Robert Hillman - Chairman, International Society of Electrochemistry, University of Leicester, UK.
Nanotechnology has attracted billions of dollars in venture capital from research
institutes, governments, and industries in recent years. Traditional nanofabrication
techniques such as CVD, sol–gel, and self-assembly have been intensively studied.
However, the electrochemical nanofabrication technique, which offers huge benefits for
manufacturing nanomaterials as well as broad applications in industries, has not been
given much attention compared with the traditional nanofabrication methods. This
book fits the niche of such technology because it summarizes various electrochemical
nanofabrication methods and shows their various essential applications in areas such as
batteries, sensors, and many future technologies.
With the development of nanotechnology and nanomaterials, the arena of
electrochemical nanofabrication has expanded significantly. The first edition of this
book was drafted in 2009. In 2010, the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Prof.
Konstantin Novoselov and Prof. Andre Geim from the University of Manchester for their
groundbreaking experiments on the two-dimensional material graphene. Three years
later, the European Commission launched the European Union’s biggest ever research
initiative, the Graphene Flagship, with a budget of 1 billion euros. In light of these
developments, this new edition of the book is enriched with the synthesis of graphene-based materials through electrochemical methods, the applications of graphene in lithium-ion and sodium-ion batteries, and the use of graphene composites in various
sensing platforms. It will be of immense interest to a broad audience in nanotechnology
