PHYSICAL AND ANALYTICAL ELECTROCHEMISTRY

 

The lecture course of Electrochemistry is offered in the first semester to third-year undergraduate and to graduate students. The aim of this course is to teach the theory behind a number of advanced electrochemical methods and the basic principles of modern instrumentation devices.

 

Course No. 0351-3815 Electrochemistry

Lecturers: Prof. Eliezer Gileadi, Prof. Emilia Eisner

 

The lecture course is followed by a laboratory course, which takes place in the second semester. In the laboratory, the theory studied in the first semester is applied to the use of modern instrumental techniques in electrochemistry.

 

* Course No. 0351-3817 Laboratory in Electrochemistry
