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

Thermodynamic and kinetic principles as well as reaction mechanisms of electrochemical processes of both microscopic and macroscopic nature.

Application of electrochemical methods and processes, e.g. for the production and modification of metallic coatings, for material conversion and electrolysis, in (electro)chemical sensors and galvanic cells, etc.. Cathodic and anodic processes (metal deposition and dissolution or oxidation, corrosion, electrocatalysis).

Teaching methods

Flipped Classroom Format. Documents are provided in advance and discussed during the lecture. Interactive questions of the students and discussions are explicitly desired!
The lecture will be held in presence.
