Fundamental Research into Understanding the Molecular structure of eleKtrochemical INterfaces

Project description

Enhancing models of processes at the electrode–electrolyte interface

Meeting the growing energy demand in a sustainable way is one of the biggest challenges of our time. The electrode–electrolyte interface is a critical component of many energy storage and energy generation devices. It is here that charge transfer, electrolyte decomposition and electrode degradation take place. As ions from the electrolyte solution adhere to the surface of the electrode, separated from the charges in the electrode itself, a so-called electric double layer is formed. This structure plays a critical role in electrochemical and electrocatalytic reactions. Through a comprehensive combination of experimental, theoretical and computational techniques, the EU-funded FRUMKIN project is developing a new model of processes occurring at the electric double layer.
