Electrochemistry Research

NPL's multi-disciplinary Electrochemistry team undertakes ground-breaking research in measurement and modelling of electrochemical and charge transfer processes.
  • Corrosion is an all-pervasive phenomenon impacting every sector of industry, the infrastructure, and the general population as a whole.
  • NPL supports UK industry in the development of electrochemical energy conversion and storage devices with increased efficiency and durability using a combination of modelling and novel measurement techniques.
  • Catalysis is a cornerstone of global industrialisation, most notably in chemicals production and energy conversion technologies, and is central to the world’s sustainable economic growth.
  • Advice can now be obtained on problems resulting from a wide range of deterioration mechanisms, including the effects of wear, fatigue and high temperature exposure, and other processes specific to polymers, composites and ceramics.
