  • Nickel(III) oxide
    Nickel(III) oxide is the inorganic compound with the formula Ni2O3.
  • Electrotyping
    Electrotyping (also galvanoplasty) is a chemical method for forming metal parts that exactly reproduce a model.
  • Action potential
    In physiology, an action potential is a short-lasting event in which the electrical membrane potential of a cell rapidly rises and falls, following a consistent trajectory.
  • Battery (electricity)
    An electric battery is a device consisting of one or more electrochemical cells with external connections provided to power electrical devices such as flashlights, smartphones, and electric cars.
  • Faraday constant
    In physics and chemistry, the Faraday constant, denoted by the symbol F and named after Michael Faraday, is the magnitude of electric charge per mole of electrons.
  • Oxidizing agent
    In chemistry, an oxidizing agent (oxidant, oxidizer) is a substance that has the ability to oxidize other substances (cause them to lose electrons).
  • Photoelectric effect
    The photoelectric effect or photoemission (given by Albert Einstein) is the production of electrons or other free carriers when light is shone onto a material.
  • Reactivity series
    In chemistry, a reactivity series (or activity series) is an empirical, calculated, and structurally analytical progression of a series of metals, arranged by their "reactivity" from highest to lowest.
  • Passivation (chemistry)
    Passivation, in physical chemistry and engineering, refers to a material becoming "passive," that is, less affected or corroded by the environment of future use.
  • Carburizing
    Carburizing, carburising (chiefly British English), or carburization is a heat treatment process in which iron or steel absorbs carbon while the metal is heated in the presence of a carbon bearing material, such as charcoal or carbon monoxide.
  • Chromate conversion coating
    Chromate conversion coating is a type of conversion coating used to passivate steel, aluminum, zinc, cadmium, copper, silver, magnesium, and tin alloys.
  • Reduction potential
    Reduction potential (also known as redox potential, oxidation / reduction potential, ORP, pE, ε, or ) is a measure of the tendency of a chemical species to acquire electrons and thereby be reduced.
  • Electrochemical potential
    In electrochemistry, the electrochemical potential, μ, sometimes abbreviated to ECP, is a thermodynamic measure of chemical potential that does not omit the energy contribution of electrostatics.
  • Electrode potential
    Electrode potential, E, in electrochemistry, according to an IUPAC definition, is the electromotive force of a cell built of two electrodes: * on the left-hand side is the standard hydrogen electrode, and * on the right-hand side is the electrode the potential of which is being defined.
  • Nickel oxide hydroxide
    Nickel oxide hydroxide is the inorganic compound with the chemical formula NiO(OH).
  • Electromagnetic absorption by water
    The absorption of electromagnetic radiation by water depends on the state of the water.
  • Proton exchange membrane
    A proton exchange membrane or polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) is a semipermeable membrane generally made from ionomers and designed to conduct protons while acting as an electronic insulator and reactant barrier, e.
  • Yttria-stabilized zirconia
    Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) is a ceramic in which the crystal structure of zirconium dioxide is made stable at room temperature by an addition of yttrium oxide.
  • Depolarization
    In biology, depolarization is a sudden change within a cell, during which the cell undergoes a dramatic electrical change.
  • Electrosynthesis
    Electrosynthesis in chemistry is the synthesis of chemical compounds in an electrochemical cell.
