Three research groups are active:

Research Division "Technical Electrochemistry": Chemistry meets Electricity

Electrochemistry primarily deals with the interaction of electrical current or voltage and chemical reactions or material modifications, etc. Important examples of electrochemical cells or electrochemical phenomena are fuel cells, batteries, electroplating, corrosion, electrolysis, ion transport or electrode polarization. Hence, electrochemistry is one of the highly topical key disciplines in chemistry having enormeous importance in sustainable energy technology (energy storage and conversion) and materials technology. Interdisciplinarity is one of its main characteristics with links to most other fields of chemistry such as inorganic, organic, analytical and physical chemistry as well as to physics, materials science and electrical engineering.

The research activities of the Electrochemistry Division at the Institute of Chemical Technologies and Analytics cover many different aspects of the field: Both aqueous electrochemical cells and solid state electrochemical systems (solid state ionics) are under investigation. Electrochemical electrode reactions as well as elementary processes of ion conduction are intensively studied. Novel electrochemical methods are developed and theoretical model considerations are performed. This leads to an improved fundamental knowledge on electrochemical processes and furthermore promotes applications of electrochemical cells and processes. In addition, a number of research activities run in the closely related field of electroceramic materials. Research projects are performed for example i) in collaboration with CEST (Competence Center for Electrochemical Surface Technologies), ii) funded by FWF (Austrian Science Fund) and iii) in the context of the Christian Doppler Laboratory.
