3. Course contents *

1) Electrochemical kinetics

  • Terms from electrochemics (thermodynamics of the electrode processes, balancing tension, kinetics from the electrode processes)
  • Electrochemical processes (applications: elektrolysis of metals, anodisation of AI, photography (developing Ag-image), metallurgic elektrochemical processes)
  • Elektrochemical measure methods

2) Elektrochemical corrosion:

  • thermodynamic aspects (Pourbaix-diagrams)
  • kinetic aspects
  • general corrosion
  • passivation
  • local corrosion (differential aëration, pitting corrosion, crevice corrosion, galvanic corrosion, erosion corrosion,...)
  • mechanical corrosion (SCC, ...)
  • microbial corrosion
  • dry corrosion
  • protective corrosion
