Commercial applications of electrochemical cells

Electrochemical cells can be used as a commercial source of electrical energy. Cells can be non-rechargeable (irreversible), rechargeable or fuel cells. The simplified electrode reactions in a lithium cell: Positive electrode:  Li+ + CoO2 + e– → Li+[CoO2]– Negative electrode: Li → Li+ + e– Students should be able to: • use given electrode data to deduce the reactions occurring in non-rechargeable and rechargeable cells and
