Electrochemistry of Fuel Cells and Batteries

ENG ME 545

Topics covered include Fundamental Electrochemistry of solid-state materials as well as aqueous and non-aqueous systems including molten salts. Thermodynamics and kinetics of electrode reactions and associated mass transport in electrochemical systems. Measurements techniques (dc polarization, ac impedance spectroscopy, blocking electrodes, etc.) used in characterizing electrochemical systems. Design of devices including fuel cells, batteries, and sensors. Electrochemical processes including membrane separation and electrolysis. Same as ENG MS 545. Students may not receive credits for both.
