The course comprises a combination of lectures and laboratory work. The objective is to teach the application of modern electrochemical techniques to problems in Chemistry, Biology, Sensors, Materials Science and Industrial Processing.


The course commences at 09.00 each day with two 40-minute lectures, followed by a break for coffee, then another two lectures. The laboratory period starts after lunch. You will carry out one experiment per day and we will do our best to allocate you the experiment you have chosen. The experiments are usually carried out in groups of 3 or 4 with a demonstrator to show you the instrumentation and to discuss both the design of the experiment and the interpretation of the results. On Friday, there are no lectures; the laboratory period will commence at 8:45 and you will be able to leave early afternoon. The course offers plenty of opportunities to discuss any electrochemical problems with members of the Southampton Group.


Participants receive hardcopy of all overheads used in the course as well as a copy of an electrochemistry textbook and a CD Rom
