Course description

This course introduces the basic principles of electrochemistry, focusing on corrosion research. It covers the basics of corrosion testing and monitoring techniques, such as linear polarization, cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) for routine applications such as rapid screening of corrosion inhibitors, materials selection, failure analysis, corrosion rate measurement, life prediction, evaluation of paints, coatings, electroplating, determination of resistance to local corrosion such as pitting and crevice corrosion and studies of passivating system.
