The theory which I believe to be a true expression of the facts of electrochemical decomposition, and which I have therefore detailed in a former series of these Researches, is so much at variance with those previously advanced, that I find the greatest difficulty in stating results, as I think, correctly, whilst limited to the use of terms which are current with a certain accepted meaning. Of this kind is the term pole, with its prefixes of positive and negative, and the attached ideas of… Expand
Electrolysis: Piles of Confusion and Poles of Attraction
However one might assess the arguments about the nature of water in the Chemical Revolution (Chap. 1), it may seem that the electrolysis of water (first performed in 1800) must have produced decisiveExpand
Joule’s Experiments on the Heat Evolved by Metallic Conductors of Electricity
The focus of this paper is one of James Prescott Joule’s scientific contributions: the laws of heat production by electric currents in conductors. In 1841, the 22 years old Joule published a paperExpand
Concepts and computational methods for the electrochemical interface and applications: Past, present, and future
Developing computational models for properties of the electrochemical interface beginning in the 1980s with semiempirical theories that to some extent mimicked Gurney's formalism, and culminating with recent codes that include all the significant interactions that determine electron transfer reversible potentials and activation energies and their dependencies on the electrode potential.

This paper chronicles the accumulation of knowledge about the electrode-electrolyte interface as a circuit element, which starts with the Helmholtz double layer of charge and progresses through the Warburg and Fricke lowcurrent-density models. Expand
The future of electrochemical deposition: nanomaterial building blocks

Since the beginning of electrochemistry in the nineteenth century, it has played a major role in the world of coatings. Electroplating, is the process, which uses an electric current to reduceExpand
Modelling electrochemical current and potential oscillations at the Si electrode
Abstract The paper presents a deep and detailed but comprehensive analysis of the electrochemical current and potential oscillations at the Si–HF interface. Calculations and simulations are based onExpand
Bancalari's role in Faraday's discovery of diamagnetism and the successive progress in the understanding of magnetic properties of matter
Summary The events and thoughts which brought Michael Faraday to the discovery of diamagnetism in the year 1845 are reviewed and commented. The contribution of Bancalari, namely the discovery ofExpand
Electrochemical removal of nitrate from the spent regenerant solution of the ion exchange
The electrochemical reduction of nitrate on tin and bismuth was studied under steady-state electrolytic experiments by galvanostatic polarization of the electrodes. The experiments were carried outExpand
A rationale for the topological approach to chemistry
Abstract Chemists experience considerable difficulty in accepting many of the more exotic ideas of quantum mechanics such as the abolition of particulate matter and its replacement by the waveExpand
Zeeman's discovery and the mass of the electron
Summary In an article published recently in this journal, one of us reconstructed how in 1899 J. J. Thomson, after having measured the mass-to-charge ratio of the corpuscle (which became ourExpand
