Interface Chemistry II: Introduction to Electrochemistry


The lecture Interface Chemistry II deals with basic aspects of electrochemistry. Based on thermodynamics of electrochemical systems various models of the electric double layer, the kinetics of electrochemical reactions and applications of modern electrochemistry in energy technology (e.g. batteries or fuel cells) are discussed. Current research projects on metal deposition, nano-structuring, corrosion and electrocatalysis are presented. Here, classical electrochemical techniques are considered, such as e.g. cyclic voltammetry, impedance spectroscopy, and in-situ scanning tunnel microscopy (in-situ STM) for high resolution structural investigations. In addition, an insight into the theoretical models for the description of elementary electrochemical processes or general electrochemical systems is given. Beyond the experimental and theoretical basics of electrochemistry references to applications in industry are made by using selected examples.
