Practical application of electrochemical methods through 4 practical exercises: stationary I (E) curves, chronoamperometry, chronopotentiometry, cyclic volamerometry (CV), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS)
Determination of kinetic quantities and transport properties of electroactive species

Contact Renaud BOUCHET


4 practical exercises are set up at the electrochemistry platform with high level equipment:

  • Practical work on the ohmic drop and its impact on the determination of kinetic quantities, methods to correct it
  • Practical work on the determination of kinetic quantities by coupling different electrochemical methods (pseudo-stationary CV on EDT, EIS)
  • TP on the determination of the diffusion coefficient by coupling different electrochemical methods (Chronoamperometry (ring disc, microelectrode), non-stationary CV and pseudo-stationary CV on EDT, EIS)
    -Practical work on the impedance of linear vs. non-linear systems
