At the Institute of Electrochemistry  electrochemical reactions on single-crystal surfaces  in contact with a (mostly) aqueous electrolyte are investigated. In this the influence of the surface structure on the reactivity of electrodes plays a special role. Thus, in close combination of experiment and theory, fundamental issues of electrochemical systems and boundary layers often directly related to different applications, e.g. from the fields of energy storage and conversion, electromobility or metal deposition, are processed.

Cluster of Excellence POLiS

Scientists from Ulm and Karlsruhe are jointly researching the batteries of the future in the new Cluster of Excellence POLiS (Post Lithium Storage). These play a key role in the mobility of tomorrow.

Bachelor's and Master's Theses

The Institute of Electrochemistry offers a wide range of exciting topics in the fields of Electrocatalysis, Batteries, Metal Deposition, Bioelectrochemistry, Ionic Liquids and Photo(electro)chemistry for Bachelor's and Master's Theses. Each field offers the possibility of experimental and/or theory-orientated work. Requests to the directorate of the Institute ( Prof. Jacob or Prof. Beránek) are always welcome.
