Advanced Electrochemical Applications

Module Title - Advanced Electrochemical Applications 
Number of credits – 10

Module description

This module has Introduction to Electrochemistry as a prerequisite

This module will cover the theories and applications of electrochemistry and will be divided into two parts:

(i) Energy applications: e.g. Batteries, flow batteries, fuel cells, supercapacitors.
(ii) Deposition/Dissolution Phenomena: e.g. Electrodeposition, electroplating, Corrosion.
(iii) AC Impedance methods: e.g. Introduction to AC methods, application to fuel cells
(iv) Further Electrochemistry Topics: e.g. Advanced kinetics & mechanism, Theoretical electrochemistry: Marcus theory, modelling.

By the end of the module you will be able to:

  • Explain the main theories and applications of electrochemistry.
  • Apply their understanding to solve electrochemical problems
