Electrochemical Methods

Edward Matthijs (1968) obtained a master degree in Chemical Engineering (1990 -KaHo, Ghent) and a PhD in sciences - Chemistry at the Catholique University of Leuven (2003). Besides teaching Electrochemistry at KaHo Ghent and at the University of Leuven, he was and is involved in several research projects dealing with galvanotechnic technologies.

Seminar Electrochemical Methods .

semi-conductors (Si. Furthermore. many modern electrochemical techniques have recently been developed for fundamental studies of electrochemical reactions. Cyclic voltammetry.metallization of plastics . . salts liquid at temperatures lower than 100 °C. This includes . migration or convection or chemical reactions preceding or following the electrode reaction can occur. limitations of material transport towards the surface by diffusion. Each technique has its advantages and drawbacks. the surface can catalyze the reaction. These modern electrochemical techniques will be treated in the course. Li-polymer etc. Al. the mechanisms are too complex and limiting cases are saught for. Usually.electrodepositions of metals that can impossibly be plated in aqueous solutions (Ti. This is partly due to the fact that electrochemical reactions occur at a surface : things can become complicated quite fast : an adsorption or desorption step of reagents or products can be required. Though classic techniques such as polarography are still important for analytical purposes. However. . interpretation of collected data requires some experience. It is aimed at to give a brief but clear introduction of the different phenomena occuring at the electrode surface.) or conducting polymers in ‘ionic liquids’. On the other hand the possibility of an easy control over the reaction rate of the redox reaction is an undeniable advantage. The help of an experienced electrochemist might be advisable. Mg etc. The course does not intend to overwhelm the attendants with mathematical theories. Ge etc.Abstract Many developments in modern chemistry rely on electrochemical principles. some recent developments based on electrochemistry will be discussed.). Li-ion.electrocatalysis and the production of nanoparticles An English syllabus is available.) . electrochemistry is not the most accessible field in chemistry. impedance techniques are widely accepted methods to study electrochemical problems. Some time is required before these approximations can be recognized. Again.production of chips and printed circuit boards (PCB’s) with lithographic techniques .the evolution of battery technology (NiMH. Their strength will be shown with hands-on examples. typical for fundamental electrochemistry. square wave voltammetry.
