Functional Electrodes For Enzymatic And Microbial Electrochemical Systems Hardback
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.
