Review quote

"Das Buch wird insbesondere f]r einen vertieften Einstieg in die Korrosionswissenschaften sehr empfohlen. Mit seiner Hilfe ld_t sich ein umfassendes Verstdndnis der Vorgdnge und Mechanismen der Korrosion erarbeiten, wie es bei jeder wissenschaftlichen Bearbeitung dieses Themas notwendig ist. Das Buch f]llt eine L]cke zwischen den zum Teil sehr ausf]hrlichen Lehrb]chern auf diesem Gebiet und anderen mehr anwendungsorientierten Bdnden, die hdufig die wissenschaftlichen Grundlagen und Hintergr]nde der Korrosion deutlich vernachldssigen. Es ist diesem Buch daher sowohl in der Lehre als auch in der Forschung auf dem Gebiet der elektrolytischen Korrosion eine weite Verbreitung zu w]nschen, die hoffentlich nicht durch den Preis eingeschrdnkt wird. Vielleicht kann mit diesem Buch auch dem wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchs das Thema Korrosion wieder etwas ndher gebracht werden und die Zahl der Interessierten auf diesem Gebiet etwas gesteigert werden, was zumindest ein schvner Nebeneffekt wdre." M. Sch]tze Materials and Corrosion 3/04

About Allen J. Bard

Series Editors: Prof. Allen J. Bard: Born December 18, 1933, Prof. Bard received his early education in the public schools of New York City and attended The City College of NY (B.Sc.,1955). He did his graduate work at Harvard Univ. with J.J. Lingane (MA, 1956; PhD, 1958) in electroanalytical chemistry. In 1958 he joined the faculty of The Univ.of Texas at Austin where he currently holds the Norman Hackerman/Welch Regents' Chair in Chemistry. His research interests have been in the application of electrochemical methods to the study of chemical problems and include investigations in electro-organic chemistry, photoelectrochemistry, electrogenerated chemiluminescence, and electroanalytical chemistry. He has published three books (Electrochemical Methods, with Larry Faulkner, Integrated Chemical Systems, and Chemical Equilibrium) and over 600 papers and chapters while editing the series Electroanalytical Chemistry (21 volumes) and the Encyclopedia of the Electrochemistry of the Elements (16 volumes) plus co-editing the monograph, Standard Potentials in Aqueous Solution. He is currently editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Chem. Society. The ISI listing of the "50 most cited chemists from 1981-1997" ranks Prof. Bard at number 13 (taken from a total of 627,871 chemists surveyed). Prof. Martin Stratmann: Born 20 April 1954, studied chemistry at the Ruhr Univ.Bochum and received his diploma in 1980. He finished his PhD in 1982 at the Max Planck Inst.(MPI) fur Eisenforschung in Dusseldorf. His professorship in physical chemistry followed in 1992 at the Univ.of Dusseldorf with electrochemical studies on metal surfaces covered with ultrathin electrolyte layers. In 1994 he took over the Chair in Corrosion Sci.and Surface Engin.at the Univ.of Erlangen and since 2000 has been a scientific member of the MPI and director at the MPI fur Eisenforschung Dusseldorf, heading a department of interface chemistry and surface engineering. His research interests concentrate on corrosion related electrochemistry, in particular with emphasis on microscopic aspects and in-situ spectroscopy, electrochemistry at buried metal/polymer interfaces - an area where he pioneered novel electrochemical techniques - atmospheric corrosion, adhesion and surface chemistry of reactive metal substrates. He has published more than 150 papers and is co-editor of Steel Research and Materials and Corrosion.
