CHEM 6671 Physical Chemistry III (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Electrochemistry: Fundamental Principles and Applications As an advanced physical chemistry topic, interfacial electrochemistry governs important processes such as metal production, coating, corrosion, photosynthesis, battery, and biological sensing. This course is designed to provide an overview of the electrochemical processes at the electrode/electrolyte interfaces. We will discuss thermodynamics and kinetics of the electrode, the diffuse-double-layer capacitance, electrocapillary thermodynamics, and the diffusion of reactive species near the electrode. These fundamental concepts will be presented within the context of relevant applications in the field of energy conversion and storage (e.g., battery and electrolysis).
