Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course is divided in two parts. The first part consists of five seminars covering different topics. Connected to each of the seminar is a home assignment, which should be done and handed in before the seminar takes place. Examples of different themes at seminars:

-    Cyclic voltammetry

-    Differential electrochemical mass spectroscopy (DEMS)

-    Electro crystallisation

-    Overpotential decay measurements

-    Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy

In the second part of the course an individual literature survey should be done. The survey should be presented in a written report, as well as orally to the other students.

Intended learning outcomes

This course aims at giving the participating doctoral students a deeper knowledge in electrode kinetics, including both theories and experimental techniques for kinetic investigations.

After completed course you should be able to:

-    Explain the theories behind the electrochemical methods cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and overpotential decay measurements.

-    Describe what information you can get when using these techniques and also their limitations.

-    Explain how to use the techniques and how to determine electrochemical parameters from experimental data.

-    Evaluate which technique that is most suitable for a certain electrochemical system and when searching for specific parameters.

-    Describe the theories behind electro crystallisation.

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
