Goals and Objectives

Each part of this module describes certain aspects of the experience that is analytical electrochemistry.

The goal is to include enough information that you can understand and use electrochemical techniques effectively without getting bogged down in theory (or lost in the double layer).

After study of this module, you should be able to:

Discuss the physical basis underlying voltammetric methods.

Describe an electrochemical cell and its contents.

Visualize how a potentiostat works.

No longer cringe at the mention of electrochemistry!
