This book provides insights into the theory and experimental practice for studying of electrochemical processes with metal complexes. An area of particular interest is electroplating (including co-deposition of metals and formation of alloys) and biological activities of the metal-organic complexes. The book also includes the usage of electrochemical techniques to the field of analysis because of its sensitivity, low price and quite short time compared to the other methods.

Electrochemistry has been undergoing noteworthy transformations in the last few decades. Such evolution is due to a number of possibility and applications of its methods in the industry, medicine and in the field of analysis. The book focus on the recent trends and achievements connected to electrochemical processes involving metal complexes. The first part of the book deals with important aspects of electroplating, including a discussion of co-deposition of metals and formation of alloys. All this processes are widely used in many industrial applications due to their benefits in improving the corrosion fatigue life, conductivity of supercritical fluid electrolytes, in increasing the magnetocrystalline anisotropy and for designing of new nano-catalysts for electro-oxidation reactions. Other particular emphasis in the book is given to the using of electrochemical techniques to the field of modern analysis. Here are presented papers that report various electroanalytical techniques for determination of anti-HIV drugs, bond energy and heavy metals in solution. The last part of the book contains researches of the new metal?organic complexes and their applications. In particular, some of the promising examples for optoelectronic applications are discussed. Other interesting applications of the metal complexes are their potential uses as bioimaging and anti-cancer agents, biological sensors and antibacterial agents. The new applications of the electrochemistry for solving of environmental issues as the corrosion of materials and metal losses are also discusses in this part. The articles collected in this book will be useful, effective, and beneficial to physicists, chemists, engineers and especially electrochemists.
