Topic outline

  • Electrochemistry is a brach of physical chemistry focusing on phenomena taking place in electrochemcial cells. Warning :-)! The course contains some theory as models depicting these phenomena are introduced.

    In general, Electrochemistry D gives an introduction to electrochemical systems and their properties.  Furthermore, most common electrochemical experimental methods, in theory and in practice, are introduced. It covers chapters 1-8 of our e-book "Electrochemistry". The courses gives a good background for electrochemical systems met in energy storage, metal refinery and bioelectrochemical systems, for excample. Grade of the Fundamental Electrochemistry course is based on pre-lecture assignments, homework problems and an exam.

    You can further learn experimental electrochamical measurment methods hands on in CHEM-E4103 Laboratory Work in Physical Chemistry course in Period IV.
