Course Description

Introduction to fundamental principles of electrochemistry and electrochemical methods of analysis. The course will cover topics in physical as well as electroanalytical chemistry including thermodynamics, electrode potentials, galvanic and electrolytic cells, electrode kinetics, dynamic electrochemistry, mass transport by migration, diffusion and convection, diffusion layers, and electrochemical instrumentation and techniques. The student will learn about the theoretical and practical aspects of electrochemical measurements whether they be used for determining some physical property a system. Using a combination of problem-based learning approaches and traditional lectures, the student will develop critical thinking skills in the areas of electrochemical method and data interpretation.
