Electrochemical kinetics

Electrochemical kinetics is the field of electrochemistry that studies the rate of electrochemical processes. This includes the study of how process conditions such as concentration and electric potential influence the rate of oxidation and reduction reactions that occur at the surface of an electrode, as well as an investigation into electrochemical reaction mechanisms. Due to electrochemical phenomena unfolding at the interface between an electrode and an electrolyte, there are accompanying phenomena to electrochemical reactions which contribute to the overall reaction rate.

Contributors to this field include Alexander Frumkin, John Alfred Valentine Butler, Max Volmer, and Julius Tafel.
