CH4716   Electrochemistry and Computational Chemistry

Academic year(s): 2018-2019

Key information

SCOTCAT credits : 10

ECTS credits : 5

Level : SCQF level 10

Semester: 1

Availability restrictions: Not automatically available to General Degree students

Planned timetable: To be arranged.

One component of the module covers electrolyte solutions and ionic conductivity, equilibrium electrochemistry, electrode processes and applications of electrochemistry. The other component is a computational element, and will introduce aspects of modern computational chemistry related to the electronic structure of atoms, molecules and solids to achieve a basic understanding of the underlying approximations made in practical calculations, and consider applications of computed structures and energies in chemistry.
