Lvov publishes book on electrochemical science and engineering

December 09, 2014

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Serguei Lvov, professor of energy and mineral engineering, and materials science and engineering, has a forthcoming book titled Introduction to Electrochemical Science and Engineering.

The book focuses on basic operational principles for electrochemical technologies and provides essential information on core concepts in electrochemical science. Some of the key technologies discussed, include fuel cells, eletrolyzers and flow batteries.

Lvov directs the electrochemical technologies lab at the EMS Energy Institute. He is recognized for his fundamental studies in a variety of areas of electrochemical engineering and material sciences, including fuel cells, electrolysis, electrophoresis, and electrochemical corrosion in supercritical water, and carbon dioxide systems. He has a number of innovations in areas such as thermodynamics of solutions, electrochemical kinetics, and electrochemical sensors at high temperatures and pressures. He is the author of more than 100 peer-reviewed papers, two books, six book chapters and two U.S. patents.
