About the book

Electrodeposition has been an active research field of vast technological significance for many decades and continues to be an area of active discovery and development. Under electrochemical control, it is possible to create coatings of alloys, metals, colloids, magnetic materials, pigments, and nanoparticles or nanostructures of precise composition, thickness, and ordering. Electrodeposited coatings and thin films have served many both protective and decorative functions in commercial products. Electrodeposited films and coating are also essential for microelectronics, biomedical devices, corrosion and wear protection, batteries, photovoltaics, other energy devices, and the development of chemical and biochemical sensors. The long investigated and commercially applied fields of electroplating, electrophoretic deposition, and electroless plating will also be the focus of this book. The more recent area of electrodeposition of nanoparticles has resulted in the formation of surfaces covered by nanoparticles of controlled composition, size, and morphology that have enhanced electrochemical and optical, and plasmonic properties for use in catalysis and sensing. Electrodeposition under precisely controlled conditions has also been used to produce other structures on substrates having unique electrochemical and optical properties. The field of patterned surfaces generated by combining electrodeposition and lithographic methods is also a leading area of basic research and technological development.

About the editor

Keith J. Stine

University of Missouri–St. Louis

Keith J. Stine was born in Jersey City, New Jersey in 1962 and grew up in New Jersey. He received his BS from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1984 and his Ph.D. in 1988 from MIT under the direction of Carl W. Garland. He was a postdoctoral fellow at UCLA in the lab of Charles M. Knobler. He joined the UMSL faculty in 1990. He served as Chair of the Faculty Senate and University Assembly for two years and was appointed department chair in August 2019. Dr. Stine's research effort involves studies of modified surfaces and nanostructures. The surface modification of nanostructures is pursued with a focus on their prospective applications in bioanalytical chemistry such as in immunoassays, sensors, or in separations. Other projects concern the study of lipid monolayers and bilayers as models of processes occurring at the surface of cell membranes, and the use of these monolayers in molecular recognition studies. Collaborative efforts related to the automated synthesis of carbohydrates are also a focus.
