Electrochemistry as Transfer Agent to Technology

  • N. Hackerman


Starting with Galvani there has been a tendency for quick application of the effects of moving charged particles across interfaces to practical use. Indeed, this tendency has from earlier times been a boon to technology. The latter is defined in Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary as “the science of the application of knowledge to practical purposes”. The dictionary correctly recognizes what we call science as our understanding of nature. Thus the field of electrochemistry even in its narrowest sense has been long active in quickly turning its science to use.
