Welcome to the Electrochemistry and Electroplating Group

The group "Electrochemistry and Electroplating" (ECG) is working on the fields of basic and applied electrochemistry and electroplating with a special focus on surface finishing. Research topics are:

  • metallization and dispersion coatings
  • corrosion and corrosion protection
  • conducting polymers and hybrid materials
  • energy storage and conversion
    (Li-ion-battery, fuel cells/electrolyser, Vanadium-Redox-Flow battery and liquid metal battery)
  • deposition from ionic liquids

Until August 2015 the group was supported by the German Association of Surface Finishing (ZVO [DE-only]) in form of an endowed chair.
