THE SEMICONDUCTORS ELECTROCHEMISTRY CONCEPTSAuthor(s): Kelvin James
Since the beginning of electrochemistry, processes occurring at electrodes with metallic conductivity have dominated the kinetic interpretation of electrode reactions. Just the recent it was discovered that semiconductor electrodes behave differently in many ways and provide fresh insights into the function played by a solid's electronic characteristics in its electrochemical reactivity in the 1950s and the early 1960s. The study of semiconductor electrodes has dramatically impacted photochemistry, solid-state physics, and the relationship between electrochemistry and these fields. Increased comprehension of interfacial reactions. In this lecture, a few instances are shown. The electrochemical de-intercalation has been significantly impacted by the solid solution series LiFeNil rO2 (0.1 0.2). Electrochemical tests utilizing Li/Lil _xFeyNi _yO2 cells reveal that as y rises, the amount of Li in these materials decreases. Ax decreases and, as a result, the practical applicability of these materials is constrained.
