Electrochemistry is present in a broad range of technologies including energy conversion and storage -- new battery systems, fuel cells, supercapacitors and solar cells. But electrochemistry is also present in environmental remediation, hydrometallurgy corrosion, industrial synthesis, surface finishing, electroplating, sensors and medical applications. Nowadays, more and more people have daily contact with electrochemistry, though they may not know it. Electrochemistry is all around us and gaining more attention from industry.
