Wang, Joseph, Analytical Electrochemistry, 3th edition, John Wiley & Sons, New Jersy, 2006

  • Chapters 1 – 6
introduction4
INTRODUCTION

What Is Chemistry?

- The central science (it merges into physics and biology)

- The study of matter and energy and the interactions

between them

- The branch of the natural sciences concerned with the

characteristics, composition, and transformations of matter.

- Everything we hear, smell, taste, see, and touch involves

chemistry and chemicals (matter)

introduction5
INTRODUCTION
  • Divisions
  • - Analytical (methods of analysis of matter)
  • Physical (theory and concepts of chemical problems)
  • - Organic (compounds of carbon)
  • - Inorganic (compounds of elements other than carbon)
  • - Biochemistry (compounds of living matter)
introduction6
INTRODUCTION

What Is Electrochemistry?

- Redox chemistry

- The study of the relations between chemical reactions

and electricity

- Deals with the measurement of electrical quantities

(current, potential, charge) and their relationship to

chemical parameters

introduction7
INTRODUCTION
  • Why Study Electrochemistry?
  • - Fabrication of flow detectors
  • - Electronics
  • - Electrochemical sensors
  • - Quality control of industrial manufacturing
  • Environmental monitoring
  • - Biomedical applications
