Document Summary

Electrochemistry study of chemical energy and electrical energy based on reduction & oxidation reactions. Electro-analytical chemistry use of electrical measurements on a chemical system for analytical purposes . Redox reaction (titration) transfer of electrons from one species to the other. Oxidation the increase in oxidation number/loss of electrons. Oxidizing agent substance causing the oxidation reaction. Reduction the decrease in oxidation number/gain of electrons. Voltaic cell generates a spontaneous voltage by a chemical redox reaction e. g. battery. Cathode electrode where the reduction takes place. Anode electrode where the oxidation takes place. Anode is on the left, cathode is on the right. **if half-cell has no solid species to serve as electrode, use an inert electrode such at pt or. Standard potentials standard reduction potentials (1 m and 1 atm) are outlined in table. Cell potential comparison between the anode and cathode reduction potentials. **standard reduction potentials used for both, negative sign is valid**
