Analytical Electrochemistry: The Basic Concepts – R. S. Kelly, East Stroudsburg University
Electrochemistry is something that is seldom studied and yet is all around us, including the control circuitry of our body. We are familiar with lightning that reverberates with thunder in a rainstorm, with batteries that power flashlights and hybrid autos, and with sensor devices such as smoke and carbon dioxide detectors, or glucose analyzers for monitoring diabetes. All rely on or exhibit some basic electrochemistry. To understand electrochemical phenomenon we need to have some understanding of basic concepts and the language that conveys these concepts. It is the goal of this module to get you started – so you can explore further as you wish. Web links and hard-copy references are provided to assist you in that process.
ElectroChemical DataBase: Gibbs energies of transfer – H. H. Girault, École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne
This searchable collection lists the Gibbs energies of transfer for ions partitioning between water and a mutually immiscible solvent. The solvents listed are 1,2-dichloroethane, 1,6-dichlorohexane, 2-heptanone, 2-octanone, NPOE-nitrophenyloctylether, trifluorotoluene, acetophenone, nitrobenzene and o-dichlorobenzene.
