Useful Notions in Electrochemistry

Abstract

This chapter provides the reader with some basic notions in electrochemistry that will serve to form the language and the interpretation framework for all of the scientific results and ideas that will be presented in the following chapters. Starting from the basic physical-chemistry of a charged surface (e.g., an electrode) in a water-based solution, the chapter will introduce the concept of electrochemical reactions at electrodes, focusing on the fundamental microscopic theory of electron transfer by Marcus. This section will be followed by one introducing basic electrochemical tools for driving the potential of one or two working electrodes in solution and by a review of the electrochemical ...
