This chapter introduces the basics of electrochemistry, with a focus on electron transfer reactions. We will show that the electrode potential formed when a metal is immersed in a solution is most of the time not an equilibrium potential, but a mixed potential in a stationary state. This mixed potential formation is the basis of corrosion of metals in aqueous solutions. Organic coatings are introduced as protecting agents, and several types of coatings are discussed: classical passive coatings, and active coatings as modern developments. Three electrochemical techniques, which are commonly used to asses the protecting properties of coatings, are shortly introduced as well: linear polarisation measurements, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, and scanning Kelvin probe measurements.
