Inorganic Electrochemistry

Discover the principles of electrochemistry with a particular focus on redox behavior of transition metal complexes including metalloproteins. Review the application of transition metal complexes as catalysts for renewable energy storage and production, including metal-catalyzed water oxidation, proton reduction and CO2 reduction processes. Learn to perform cyclic and pulsed voltammetry, electrolysis, and spectroelectrochemistry in the laboratory. Course evaluation will be done based on weekly lab reports and homework, class presentation and final exam.
