Description The module with cover the basics of modern electrochemistry, including:
  • Equilibrium electrochemistry/thermodynamics
  • Dynamic electrochemistry & kinetics
  • Faradaic vs Galvanic electrochemistry
  • Common experimental techniques
  • Illustrative case studies
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • Apply the methods and techniques learned to review, extend and apply their knowledge and understanding, to initiate and perform short projects.
  • Critically evaluate arguments and data, to construct judgements and appropriate questions to enable a solution (or solutions) to a problem to be reached
