The module enables students to obtain the knowledge of currently used electrochemical techniques. Emphasis is given not only to the understanding of the principles of the electrochemical phenomena but also to the application of techniques namely in analytical chemistry and the field of environment. After passing the course student would obtain a compact overview of experimental techniques in electrochemistry and knowledge about their experimental demands as well as advantages and disadvantages.
