Electropolymerization: Studies and Applications / Electrodes and Double Layers
Electropolymerization plays a critical role in the electrochemical systems. In this chapter, we address such role within the context of interplay between kinetics and energetics. The trains of chin radical reactions leads to the formation of thin films in electrochemical devices. The structure of so-called solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) during the initial charge/discharge cycles of the device of any kind (i.e. rechargeable battery) on the surface of electrode directly controls the the ultimate stability and longevity. In this chapter, we study the morphological evolution of SEI, both in terms of transport and thermodynamics within quantitative and qualitative contexts.
