Project Details


The project is concerned with a study of the different non-aqueous chemical processes using electrochemical (cyclic voltammetry, square-wave voltammetry, chronoamperometry etc.) and spectroscopic (Raman, IR, ESR, NMR etc.) techniques.All the studied processes involve electrochemical steps or electrochemical techniques were used for their study.
The project involves investigation of following electrochemical reaction or systems:
1. Electroplating with refractory metals (niobium, tantalum) from molten salts.
2. Phosphoric acid, molten carbonate and solid oxide fuel cells.
3. Development of the active materials for nickel- metal hydride batteries.
4. Study of the mechanism of the catalytic SO2 oxidation using electrochemical techniques.
