Foster Mississippi State University Electrochemistry Electrochemistry is the study and use of e flow in chemical reactions. Redox reactions generate (and use) e Those e can be harnessed (batteries). Corrosion is an electrochemical reaction. Applied e flow: Can drive reactantfavored reactions toward products. Rechargeable batteries, electrolysis, and electroplating Redox Reactions Oxidation Number Refresher Pure element = 0. Monatomic ion = charge of ion. (ox. numbers in a species) = overall charge. Element ox. no. Exceptions? F 1 None Cl, Br, I 1 Interhalogens H +1 Metal hydrides = 1 O Metal peroxides = 1 Halogen oxides Redox Reactions Oxidation & reduction (Redox) always occur together. Reduction = gain of e = decrease in ox. no. Oxidation = loss of e = increase in ox. no. + e HCl(aq) + Mg(s) H (g) + MgCl (aq) e H + is reduced, Mg is oxidized.

A salt bridge (or porous barrier) is required... Also called a voltaic cell or a battery. A battery is strictly a series of linked voltaic cells. Anode (oxidation) Salt bridge Cathode (reduction) Electrochemical Cells Salt bridge Contains a salt solution (e.g. K SO 4 ). Ions pass into the cells (restricts bulk flow). Stops charge buildup.

Electrical work = charge x ΔE p = (number of e ) ΔE p SI Units Charge: 1 coulomb (C) = 1 ampere x second = 1 As Potential: 1 volt (V) = 1 J C 1 Voltage depends on cell chemistry size. Cell voltage varies if conditions vary. A standard voltage ( E ) occurs if: All [solute] = 1 M. or saturated if the solubility < 1 M. All gases have P = 1 bar. All solids are pure. Charge depends on n reactants size. E cell is positive = product favored reaction (E cell < 0 is reactant favored) Standard hydrogen electrode (SHE) Pt H (1bar), 1M H 3 O + Absolute voltages cannot be measured.

E tables are reduction values, so: E cell = E reduction + E oxidation E cell = E cathode E anode Reaction Process E red (Table) E Zn Zn + + e oxidation 0.76 V V Cu + + e Cu reduction V V Or E cell = E cathode E anode E cell = 0.34 (0.76) V = 1.10 V E cell = E oxid + E red = V = 1.10 V What is E for a Ni(s) Ni + Ag + Ag(s) cell? Reduction Half Reaction E (V) Ag + (aq) + e Ag(s) Ni + (aq) + e Ni(s) 0.5 Anode written on the left; cathode the right. E = E cathode E anode = (0.5) V = 1.05 V If Ni(s) Ni + (aq, 1M) is connected to SHE, the Ni electrode loses mass over time. E cell = 0.5 V. Is Ni oxidized or reduced? What is E for the Ni half cell? Ni loses mass: Ni(s) Ni + (aq) + e Ni is oxidized (anode). Since: E cell = E cathode E anode 0.5 V = E SHE E anode = 0 E anode E anode = 0.5 V (Note: this is the tabulated reduction value) Using Standard Cell Potentials 1. Tabulated halfcell E are reductions.. Reactions can be reversed. 3. More positive E = easier reduction. 4. Less positive E = easier oxidation (for the reverse reaction). 5. A left species, will oxidize any right below it. 6. E depends on [reactant] and [product], but not on n reactant or n product (i.e not stoichiometric coefficient). 5
