Electrochemical reaction engineering in materials processing

Richard Alkire, Marta Verhoff

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Electrochemical reactions involve heterogeneous charge transfer processes at surfaces. Their association with processing is centered on controlling reactions that produce materials, and on designing materials that resist corrosion. Reaction engineering strategies depend on length scale, and here examples in three categories are provided. These suggest the importance of incorporating understanding of surface films and molecular scale events into mathematical models suitable for use in engineering design and control.
