Fundamentals of Electrochemistry


CHEM 720

Here you will find links to course notes that are being made available. This course is being taught by 10 different people. There will be a vast difference in the kinds of resources each is prepared to make available. We hope that you will understand. I will post these documents as they become available.

Ooops. Professor Baker just noticed that you need Wordperfect fonts to correctly view his presentation. If you do not have those fonts, download this executable file, run it, and extract the fonts into c:\windows\fonts.

Here are some relevant literature references related to today's lecture.

Lecture 1: Thermodynamics and electrochemistry fundamentals

There are three documents here. The first is the powerpoint document that is used in Lecture 1. The other documents are pdf files (you can read and print these with Adobe Acrobat Reader). They are the size reduced images of the powerpoint document. I provide them in two forms depending upon your preferences. The first with three slides to a page, has smaller slides and fewer pages than the other. however, the two slides toa page document is more readable. Both provide some space for taking your notes. You are welcome to use all, any, or none of these, as fits your personal learning style.
