Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

  • ... differentiate different (electro-)chemical driving forces for the formation of charged interfaces and describe the thermodynamics of these processes.
  • ... explain the structure of the electrochemical double layer by means of different physical modells, and to explain the difference between electrostatic and chemical capacitance.
  • ... explain the formation of mixed potentials.
  • ... describe the electrochemical processes behind corrosion phenomena and to analyse them by basic thermodynamic and kinetic models (Pourbaix and Evans diagrams).
  • ... explain the basics of electrochemical metal layer deposition.
  • ... describe the electrochemical basics of selected large scale industrial processes (e.g. chlor-alkali electrolysis, aluminium smelting, or others).

Subject of course

Thermodynamics and kinetics of electrochemical processes including reaction mechanisms

Application of electrochemcial technologies for electroplating, refining, production, electrolysis, sensors and galvanic cells, cathodic and anodic processes, electrocatalysis, corrosion

Teaching methods

Flipped Classroom Format. Documents are provided chapter by chapter and discussed during the lecture. Interactive questions of the students and discussions are explicitly desired!
The lecture will be held in presence - should again distance learning be required due to changes in the infection situation, it is also possible to switch to Zoom during the semester (but this will be announced separately).

Mode of examination

Written and oral

Examination modalities

For written exams dates will be announced on TISS. In addition, oral exams are possible - for appointments please send an email to alexander.opitz@tuwien.ac.at.
During distance learning phases the written exams will be held as Open Book Exams, the oral exams are done via Zoom.

In case of the written exams, the examination sheet is a PDF form - it is therefore recommend answering the questions on the PC with a PDF reader that supports saving form entries (e.g. Adobe Reader, please test other PDF readers beforehand to see whether they save entries correctly). Alternatively, you can print the form, fill it in manually, scan it and upload it.

For the oral examinations, an internet-capable device (PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar) with webcam is required.
