Abstract

This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of the general fundamentals of electrochemical cells. During operation, the battery processes involve electron transfer at the electrode-electrolyte interface and are closely associated with the electrical double layer that affects the kinetics of electrode reactions. Although the theoretical cell potential of a battery is governed by the Nernst equation, the overpotential always exists in the actual operation of practical batteries. ...
