Electrochemical potassium storage explores the principles, materials, and technological developments of a variety of battery technologies based on electrochemical potassium storage. It covers the principles of potassium-ion batteries (organic and aqueous electrolytes), potassium metal batteries, potassium-sulfur (selenium) batteries, and potassium-oxygen batteries, as well as the development of the electrode materials of these batteries and the understanding of electrochemical cell operations.Batteries using potassium ions as the charge carrier to store energy operate via different electrochemical processes and have different features of materials electrochemistry compared to lithium-based batteries. Thus, battery technologies based on electrochemical potassium storage exhibit different performance strengths, potentially having diverse market applications. This is particularly important for the search for environmentally and economically sustainable alternatives to conventional lithium-ion batteries in a wide range of applications.This book presents the state-of-the-art development of potassium-based batteries and in-depth discussion on their structure-to-performance relationships.

Organic Synthesis, Fifth Edition provides a reaction-based approach to this important branch of organic chemistry. Updated and accessible, this eagerly-awaited revision offers a comprehensive foundation for graduate students coming from disparate backgrounds and knowledge levels, to provide them with critical working knowledge of basic reactions, stereochemistry and conformational principles. This reliable resource uniquely incorporates molecular modeling content, problems, and visualizations, and includes reaction examples and homework problems drawn from the latest in the current literature. There have been advancements in organic reactions, particularly organometallic reactions, and there is a need to show how these advancements have influenced current organic synthesis. The goal is to revise and update the examples of reaction examples taken from the synthesis literature from about 2017-2023. The reactions illustrate those that are used most often in modern organic synthesis, but recent examples will show their current relevance.  Where new approaches and new reactions have been developed for organic synthesis, examples will be added as new material.
