Electrochemistry is an important area of science covering many interesting and important topics of current scientific research. For example, it is key to the development of new power sources (for example new batteries, fuel cells and supercapacitors) as well as for the development of new sensing strategies or the understanding of parasitic corrosion effects. This course is designed to build on previous courses and extend this understanding to encompass new techniques and approaches (e.g., AC impedance and microelectrodes) as well as exploring advanced aspects of battery technologies relevant for the 21st century. Students are expected to gain advanced knowledge from the course, which will help prepare them for modern electrochemistry research in both the academic/industrial arena.
