CHE 7520 - Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering


This course will cover topics related to electrochemical engineering in industrial systems, including consideration of thermodynamics, kinetics and mass transport. Application to real-world industrial systems will be discussed. Means of evaluating electrochemical system performance (i.e., mathematical modeling) will be practiced.

Requisites: CHE 6400
Credit Hours: 3
Repeat/Retake Information: May not be retaken.
Lecture/Lab Hours: 3.0 lecture
Grades: Eligible Grades: A-F,WP,WF,WN,FN,AU,I
Learning Outcomes:
  • Students will be able to calculate reversible cell potential from a fundamental knowledge of electrochemical thermodynamics and equilibrium conditions.
  • Students will be able to describe and quantify the primary modes of species transport in electrochemical systems, and identify individual contributions from migration, diffusion and convection.
  • Students will be able to describe, using standard schematics and nomenclature, equilibrium conditions between phases in an electrochemical cell.
  • Students will be able to develop a mathematical model, using finite difference methods, of coupled species transport in electrochemical systems.
  • Students will be able to estimate operating current density and over potential for several electrochemical systems.
