Electro Chemistry: Concept and its significance
The Electro chemistry is that branch of chemistry under which those chemical reactions are studied which occurs through passing the electric current. The above term is very technical but there are number of application of this concept in our daily life, for example- batteries, control of corrosion, metallurgy, electrolysis etc.
Division of substance according to the Electro Chemistry
The Electro Chemistry is that chemistry which examines or analyse the phenomena that resulting from combined chemical and electrical effects. These analyses are done by segregating the substance or identifying the substance which are discussed below:
- Electrolytic: It is those substances (compound) which is in liquefied state or whose aqueous solutions are good conductor of electricity. Example; Acid, base or alkali, salt etc are electrolytes.
- Non-electrolysis: It is those substances (compound) which is in liquefied state or whose aqueous solutions are bad conductor of electricity. Example; sugar, urea, chloroform etc.
Phenomena of Electro Chemistry
The electrolysis is the process of decomposition or dissociation by passing electric current through liquefied state of substance (compound) or through its aqueous solution.
