Bridging electrochemistry and heterogeneous catalysis



The discovery of the effect of the electrochemical promotion of catalysis (EPOC) or non-Faradaic electrochemical modification of catalytic activity (NEMCA effect) is described together with the key steps of its exploration at high pressure and high vacuum and its rationalization via electrochemical and surface science techniques. Recent attempts for its practical utilization are also surveyed.
