  • From the formal description of the stationary state to the non-stationary state:
    Simple mechanism E to the general case of complex mechanisms
  • Operation of a potentiostat/galvanostat (electronic circuit, ADC, ohmic drop correction, rating, compliance, etc)
    -Cyclic voltammetry (method, description of results according to process kinetics, determination of kinetic and transport quantities)
    -Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (method, representation of results, kinetic and equivalent circuit approach, transport impedance, etc)
  • Application to examples of complex mechanisms
