Electrocatalysis is a type of catalysis that results in the modification of the rate of an electrochemical reaction occurring on an electrode surface. The relative electrocatalytic properties of a group of materials at a given temperature and concentration are not necessarily constant, and may vary according to the different dependence of rates on electrical potential. This book reviews recent progress in electrocatalysis.

Electrocatalysis is a branch of electrochemistry which has become a necessity for industrial electrochemical processes. This book is a compilation of research articles focussing on the various aspects of electrocatalysis, right from fundamentals to it applications in fuel cells, Hydrogen evolution reaction (HER), electro-oxidation, oxygen reduction, sensors and solar fuels. The initial part of the book from chapter 1- 4 is focussed on the fundamentals of electrocatalysis and gives an introduction to fuel cells, HER and heterogeneous catalysis. Chapters 5-10 are a compilation of research articles on application of electrocatalysis in fuel cells, electro-oxidation, reaction mechanisms and reactions in electrocatalysis. Chapters 11-18 focus on applications of electrocatalysis in the extraction of bio-diesel, sensors, low temperature fuel cells, oxygen reduction reactions and ammonia generation. I believe that this book will be handy to audience who are interested in electrocatalysis and also beginners who would like to learn the applications of electrocatalysis in industrial world.
