Content

A Interfacial electrochemistry

  • The electrochemical interface, electrocehmical potential, capacitive and faradaic current densities.
  • Models of the double layer.
  • Specific adsorption.
  • Thermodynamics of the interface.
  • Influence of the double layer on the electrode kinetcis (with / without specific adorption).

B Electrocatalysis

  • Electronic structure and electrocatalysis (relationship structure / composition / electrocatalytic activity)
  • Example of multi-step reaction: Volmer-Heyrovsky-Tafel (H2 evolution).
  • Physical techniques coupled to electrochemistry (FTIR, Raman, DEMS, etc.)


Prerequisites

Basics in electrochemistry.
Electrochemical kinetics.

Tests

Written exam (2h) with documents
