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. Chemical sciences journal is the leading peer-reviewed journal in Electrochemistry. The journal seeks to provide rapid publication of important and urgent communications and short papers across the broad spectrum of electrochemical research. The journal aim to be the fastest journal in electrochemistry.
