An understanding of electrochemical processes is critical in describing the behavior of batteries, photovoltaics, solar fuel systems, and other important devices used in energy conversion and environmental remediation. This course will cover modern inorganic electrochemistry, photochemistry, and photoelectrochemistry from a microscopic perspective of solid-electrolyte interfaces. The course material will start with the thermodynamics of solid-electrolyte interfaces and the kinetics of electron transfer across these interfaces. Electroanalytical techniques, such as cyclic voltammetry and potential step methods, will be described to understand the mechanism of various electrochemical and photochemical reactions. The second half of the course will cover several applications of electrochemical cells, including batteries, fuel cells, and photoelectrochemical cells. Prerequisites: Chem 461 or Chem 465 or consent of instructor.
