Coulometry in Analytical Chemistry aims to fill the apparent gap in analytical textbook literature on analytical chemistry by presenting relevant studies from the time the ideas are first developed to the more topical ones, wherein more modernized concepts are encompassed. This text has seven chapters; first of which gives an introduction to the study. This book goes on examining the constant-current coulometry and constant-potential coulometry. The next two chapters encompass the equipment needed for these groups of techniques, followed by a chapter on the applications of these methods. The next chapter then discusses the constant-current coulometric titrations. The last part presents the fundamental papers in the development of coulometry. This book will be invaluable to chemistry students and practitioners, especially those interested in analytical chemistry.
