After this course you:|
• Are familiar with the fundamentals of electrochemistry (electrodes, electrochemical cells,)
• Are able to identify and balance relevant redox reactions particularly those related to relevant applications (such as electrochemical batteries, fuel cells, metal recycling, etc.)
• Are familiar with electrochemical methods in research (e.g. voltammetry, conductance and impedance measurements)
• Are able to define and apply Maxwell relations.
• Are familiar with reaction kinetics (rate laws, Arrhenius equation).
• Are familiar with the basics of electrical measurements, complex resistance, current, voltage, power.
• Understand and are able to apply the concept of mean activity coefficient.
• Are familiar with the Debye-Hückel theory.
• Understand concepts of electrolytes, (over)potential, ionic transport and electrochemical kinetics.
• Are familiar with alternative energy storage systems (such as thermal and thermochemical batteries).
