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… 

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 decisive

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 paper

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.

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 reduce

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 of

Topology, Oxidation States, and Charge Transport in Ionic Conductors

Recent theoretical advances, based on a combination of concepts from Thouless’ topological theory of adiabatic charge transport and a newly introduced gauge-invariance principle for transport
