Need to learn some electrochemistry fast

    I am an undergraduate who recently started on a research project involving the dielectric properties of colloidal suspensions. Though my physics background is strong, my chemistry background is weak and I would like to learn about the following concepts relevant to my research:

    1. Electrode polarization (ideal vs. non-ideal)
    2. Electrode impedance
    3. Induced polarization
    4. Faradaic and non-Faradaic processes
    5. Double layers (specifically Guoy-Chapman double layers)
    7. Zeta potential

    What are some good resources (texts, etc.) where I can learn about such things?

    Thanks very much.

    If you find a good book, let me know- I've been trying to find something like this for my students for several years. The best I have found (so far) are:

    https://www.amazon.com/Electrochemistry-Chemists-Donald-T-Sawyer/dp/0471594687/ref=zg_bs_16052641_6
