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.

It has been about 50 years since Michaelisl originally described the electrochemical behaviour of a group of substances he called "viologens," which are actually 1,l'-disubstituted 4,4'-bipyridinium ions. Since then, there have been several waves of interest in this class of compounds, each of which has generated its own literature with few to no connections between them. As a result, a lot of knowledge has been lost. The goal of the current review is to bind the literature from many sources together. We have synthesised and described the solid solution LiFeyNil _yO2, 0.0 y-0.5, in the same manner. It is possible to deduce the structure of LiFeO2 from the rock-salt structure as well, however in this case the cation ordering leads to a tetragonal distortion with Li and Fe alternating along the c direction. But since Li and Fe likewise switch off in the basal planes, LiFeO2 is not a multilayered substance. It is crucial for our purposes that we compare this structure to that of LiNiO2. To do this, a basal plane super-lattice arrangement can be used to swap out half of the transition metal atoms in the LiNiO2 structure with half of the Li ions. The (111) cubic layers of the LiFeO2 structure are shaded in the image. However this ordered structure of LiFeO2 is only observable when the samples are cooled slowly during preparation. Li and Fe are distributed erratically across the cation sites in the more prevalent form of LiFeO2, restoring the cubic symmetry of NiO.

Since the violates have one of the lowest (most cathodic) redox potentials of any organic system that exhibits a sizable degree of reversibility, they continue to be significant here as redox markers in biological investigations. They later served as the parent chemicals for the "parquet" family of herbicides, one of the most exciting new classes of herbicides to be found in recent memory. The redox potential was discovered to be connected to herbicidal action.


The examples used in this lecture should have shown how the study of semiconductor electrodes has impacted and expanded the ideas of electrochemistry in a variety of ways. This is undoubtedly a minuscule in comparison to semiconductors' influence on the development of electronic measurement, communication, and computation technologies, from which electrochemists have also benefited. The conventional science of electrochemistry was rejuvenated in many ways by these new ideas, which also piqued the curiosity of colleagues from other fields.

Electrochemical issues and from solid-state physics and photochemistry. As a fundamental component of electrochemistry today, semiconductor electrochemistry can be highly beneficial to our colleagues from related fields. Domains in which challenging multidisciplinary challenges involving electrochemistry are understood.
