Electrochemical characterization of redox-active polymers
The goal of the project is to characterize the electrocatalytic performance (activity, selectivity ad stability) of polymeric organic electrocatalysts that have been synthesized in the Giovannitti group. You will characterize the electrochemical redox reactions of these polymers in organic and aqueous electrolytes in inert conditions to identify the operational voltages of the polymer. Afterward, you will investigate the activity and stability of the polymer for electrochemical reductive reactions.
What you will learn from us:
Electrochemical characterization techniques
Fabrication of electrodes
Investigating structure-property relationships
After the completion of your master's thesis project, you will know the fundamentals of electrochemistry
Skills to bring:
Being a team player
Open for learning
Training your colleagues
This is a characterization project - the majority of your time will be spent working in the lab fabricating- and testing electrodes.
