Electrochemistry deals in chemical reactions which occurs in a solution at the interface of an electron conductor (the electrode: a metal or a semiconductor) and an ionic conductor (the electrolyte). These reactions include electron transfer between the electrode and the electrolyte. Hence electrochemistry deals with interactions between electrical energy and chemical change and vice versa. If a chemical reaction takes place by applying external voltage, as in electrolysis, or if a voltage is generated by a chemical reaction as in a battery, it is an electrochemical reaction. Chemical reactions where electrons are transferred between molecules are called oxidation-reduction (redox) reactions. Electrochemistry deals with situations where redox reactions are differentiated in space or time, linked by an external electric circuit. A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record. Chemical Science journal is one of the Leading journals in Electrochemistry. Chemical Sciences journal is providing fast dissemination of short communications covering the whole field of electrochemistry.
