Advanced Electrochemistry

This course will focus on the physical properties of charged electrode/solution interfaces and the chemical processes that occur as a result of changes in electrical energy at those interfaces. Topics include: a review of electrode processes and thermodynamics of electrochemical cells; electrochemical instrumentation; electric double-layer structure and adsorption; electrode reaction kinetics and potential sweep methods. Advanced topics include electrode reactions coupled with homogeneous chemical reactions as well as spectro-electrochemistry. (lec 3) cr 3.
