Chapter 24. Electrochemical Reaction Engineering

Learning Objectives

After completing this chapter, you will be able to:

  • Understand basic definitions used in electrochemical engineering and their relation to equivalent concepts in chemical reaction engineering.

  • Evaluate the minimum voltage requirements from thermodynamic considerations of the reactions taking place at electrodes.

  • Review two common kinetic models for electrochemical reactions: the Butler-Volmer model and the Tafel model.

  • Show how mass transfer affects the rate and understand the notion of the limiting current.

  • Set up a model and design a simple electrochemical process, copper electrowinning from a leach solution.

  • Show how the current versus voltage relation in a fuel cell is ...
