Importance and scope of Electrochemistry
Electrochemistry is the chapter of chemistry that deals with the relations between electrical and chemical phenomena. It is also the branch of physical chemistry that studies the relationship between electricity, as a calibration and quantitative phenomenon, and identifiable chemical change, with either electricity considered an outcome of a particular chemical change or vice-versa. These reactions involve electric charges moving between electrodes and an electrolyte (or ionic species in a solution). Thus electrochemistry deals with the interaction between electrical energy and chemical change. The practical importance of electrochemical method, the role of the processes in living organisms, and the unique features of their experimental class have led to the establishment of electrochemistry as an independent scientific discipline. Modern electrochemistry focuses on electrochemical kinetics, that is, the study of the mechanism and the laws of the behaviour of electrochemical reactions. Electrochemistry has an ever increasing impact in everybody’s daily life. Other than the fact that many physiological processes in our body depend on electrified interfaces and electrochemical processes, electrochemical energy conversion and storage are directly at work in consumer batteries (like in notebooks, smart phones and car batteries) and, increasingly, in fuel cells. Many appliances of daily life, like screws, nuts, electrical connectors have been surface finished by electroplating processes, to protect them from corrosion (an electrochemical process as well) or to improve functional properties like electronic conductivity. Even more, the manufacturing of all printed circuit boards in electronic devices contains electrochemical steps for the plating of the interconnects. Even though a lot of progress has been made in the past one hundred years in the understanding and application of electrochemical processes.
Electrochemical process are highly used in various branches of industry. The chemical industry makes use of electrolysis, which is the most important process for the production of chlorine, alkalis, many oxidizing agents, fluorine, and organo-fluorine compounds. The electrosynthesis of the most varied chemical components has gained increasing importance. The production of aluminium, magnesium, sodium, lithium, beryllium, tantalum, titanium, and zinc and the refining of copper are based on electrochemical method. Hydrogen is manufactured by the electrolysis of water on a relatively limited scale, although with the increasing exhaustion of natural fuel reserves and the increasing production of electric power, this process for the production of hydrogen will increase. Protective and decorative electroplating is used in various industries. Electrochemical information converters are finding increasing use in industry. Major importance is the development of the electric automobile. The rapidly increasing demand for independent sources of electric power in industry, space exploration, and household uses has stimulated the search for new electrochemical systems with enhanced efficiency, power capacity, and safety. The most important biological processes, such as the assimilation and use of food energy, the transmission of the nervous impulse, and the detection of the visual image is impossible without taking into account electrochemical links, which are related primarily to the functioning of biological membranes. The resolution of these problems sets new tasks for theoretical electrochemistry and should significantly affect future medical practice.
Electronics is one of the world’s rapidly-growing industries. Germany is and will continue to be an important location for the high-end manufacturing of complex components. Germany’s electrical and electronics firms manufacture more than 100 thousand different products and systems ranging from microelectronic components to electrical household appliances, automation systems, lamps and luminaires, electronic medical equipment, and automotive electronics. Total industry turnover is forecast to grow to EUR 178 billion in 2015. Germany is the European chemicals market leader with total chemical product originating in Germany equivalent to EUR 110 billion in 2014. Sixty highly developed chemical parks with excellent infrastructure represent an optimal base for chemical processors, refiners, and end-product producers. Around one third of all European chemical industry investment is made in Germany.
Germany with its German cars is one of the dominating automobile havens in the world. Germany is the home to the most popular car manufacturing units. Audi, Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes Benz, all have had their origins in Germany and now have factories spread throughout the world. Car enthusiasts from all over celebrate their love for automobiles by visiting Germany’s car museums, and factory tours. Apart from this, the scenic beauty and the roads offer an enormous experience for car and driving lovers. Automotive industry manufacturers, suppliers and service providers represent Germany’s largest industry in revenue terms – generating turnover of EUR 384 billion in 2014. Automotive industry manufacturers, suppliers and service providers represent Germany’s largest industry in revenue terms – generating turnover of EUR 384 billion in 2014.
