Functional Electrodes For Enzymatic And Microbial Electrochemical Systems, Hardback Book

Functional Electrodes For Enzymatic And Microbial Electrochemical Systems Hardback

Edited by Nicolas (Cnrs, France) Brun, Victoria (Conicet, Argentina) Flexer


Bioelectrochemical Systems (BESs) are innovative and sustainable devices.

They combine biological and electrochemical processes to engineer sensors, treat wastewater and/or produce electricity, fuel or high-value chemicals.

In BESs, scientists have managed to incorporate biological catalysts, i.e. enzymes and/or microorganisms, and make them work in advanced electrochemical cells.

BESs operate under mild conditions - at close to ambient temperature and pressure and at circumneutral pH - and represent a sustainable alternative to precious metal-based systems.

Incorporating biological catalysts into devices while maintaining their activity and achieving electrical communication with electrode surfaces is a critical challenge when trying to advance the field of BESs.From implantable enzymatic biosensors to microbial electrosynthesis, and from laboratory-scale systems and fundamental studies to marketed devices, this book provides a comprehensive overview of recent advances related to functional electrodes for BESs.

Suitable for researchers and graduate students of chemistry, biochemistry, materials science and environmental science and technology.
