Litterature studies, studentled seminars, labs och problemsolving in groups. Examination is a group task.

Course outline
1.    basic concepts, electrode processes, the double layer, introduction to mass transport, coupled chemical reactions
2.    thermodynamics of electrochemical cells and reactions
3.    kinetics of electrode reactions (one step-one electron, multistep mechanisms, Marcus theory for electrode reactions, Gerisher models)
4.    Mass transfer at electrodes (diffusion, migration)
5.    Potential step methods and potential sweep methods and Spectroelectrochemistry
6.    Bulk electrolysis
7.    Coupled electrode and chemical reactions, modified electrodes, semiconductor electrodes
8.    Photoelectrochemistry, electrogenerated photoluminescence
9.    Applications of electrochemisty I
10.    Applications of electrochemistry II
