The aim of the course is the descriptions of the methods used in electrochemistry, photoelectrochemistry and photocatalysis. Emphasis is given not only on the understanding of electrochemical and photoelectrochemical processes, but also on their application primarily in the energetics, analytical chemistry and environmental cleaning. After passing of the graduate gets a comprehensive overview of experimental performance and benefits of electrochemical and photoelectrochemical methods.
