Electrochemistry is a study of the relationships that exist between the electrical and chemical properties of systems that contain a significant proportion of ionic or ionisable species. Electrical measurements are among the most convenient and accurate methods used in the study of ionic systems and these features, together with the obvious importance of such systems, largely account for the prominence given to electrochemistry in chemical education. Other important considerations are the use of chemical reactions as sources of electrical energy and, conversely, the use of electrical energy as an alternative to heat in the promotion of reaction.
