Batteries operate by converting chemical energy into electrical energy through electrochemical discharge reactions. Batteries are poised of one or more cells, each enclosing a positive electrode, negative electrode, separator, and electrolyte. Batteries are rated in terms of their nominal voltage and ampere-hour capacity.

Corrosion is the process that results in the deterioration of the performance of a material the result of which is corrosion damage. A physicochemical interaction leading to a significant deterioration of the functional properties of either a material, or the environment with which it has interacted, or both of these. Corrosion damage to materials can be caused by a wide variety of environments. The overall corrosion process necessarily involves at least two simultaneous reactions: an oxidation (or anodic) reaction and a reduction (or cathodic reaction), which are coupled through the exchange of electrons and are therefore known as electrochemical reactions. Passivity is caused by the solid-state electrochemical oxidation of a metallic substrate, under the correct conditions of potential and pH, to a solid species that is largely stable to dissolution. The four main methods for controlling the corrosion of a material or component are: (a) materials selection, (b) environmental modification, (c) electrochemical control and (d) application of a protective coating.

Dielectric is something analogous to current flow over a capacitor arrangment at the time of  the charging process when current introduced at one plate (usually a metal) flows through the insulator to charge another plate (usually a metal). Dielectric materials have been used in numerous applications encompassing coatings on conductors e.g., cables, wires! Passive devices in circuits e.g., capacitors! Insulators in active devices e.g., gate dielectrics in transistors. Ceramic components are used in packages for semiconductor integrated circuits, as well as in automobile engines, in composites for aerospace vehicles, and in high efficiency power generation stations. Dielectrics play important roles in applications ranging from sensors, isolation for conductors in the power utility industry, to ceramic cookware. Further, in the promptly emerging area of biological systems, the dielectric constant is important because electrostatic effects are used to link structure and function of biological molecules. Dielectric materials such as ferroelectric and piezoelectric nanomaterial’s offer significant advantages for communication devices and data storage systems.

Electrochemical deposition is a method by that a thin and tightly adherent desired coating of metal, oxide, or salt can be deposited onto the surface of a conductor substrate by simple electrolysis of a solution containing the desired metal ion or its chemical complex. Electroplating is often also called "electrodeposition". "Electroplating" can be considered to occur by the process of electrodeposition. It’s a action using electrical current to decrease cations of a desired material from a solution and coat that material as a thin film onto a conductive substrate surface. Electrodeposition is being exploited now to make complex 3D electrical interconnects in computer chips. Using proteins to regulate the growth of electrodeposited materials is truly a frontier area where biology meets nanotechnology. Nanofabrication is the design and manufacture of devices with dimensions measured in nanometres. One nanometre is 10 -9 meter, or a millionth of a millimetre. Nanofabrication is of significance to computer engineers by cause it discloses the door to super-high-density microprocessor s and memory chips. Electrocoating is a process by which electrically charged particles are deposited out of a water suspension to coat a conductive part. During the electrocoat method, paint is enforced to a part at a certain film thickness, which is regulated by the amount of voltage applied.

Electrochemical oxidation (EO) as electrochemical method is different by three aspects. The first is that is the most versatility process in water treatment area and covers: various industrial effluent treatment including, amongst others, distillery, agrochemical, pulp and paper, textile dyes, oilfield and metalplating wastes; hazardous effluent treatment including hospital wastes; removal of pathogens and persistent, pharmaceutical residues and biological from municipal wastewater treatment plant; removal of organic micro-pollutants such as pesticides and heavy metals such as arsenic and chromium from water. Electrochemical oxidation is complementary with most other methods: chemical or electrochemical, and is often combined with one or more of them. And finally, this procedure is the most interdisciplinary of all. It includes: material science, (micro)biology, (electro)chemistry, environmental protection, water supply systems, etc. The most usual water treatment process are electrocoagulation, electroflotation, electrochemical oxidation, electrochemical reduction and electrodeposition.

Electrochemical investigation on inorganic molecules, compounds is inorganic electrochemistry. Inorganic Electrochemistry is therefore to study the effects of such electron addition/removal processes on the molecular frames. Voltammetry is the study of current as a function of applied potential. These curves I = f(E) are called voltammograms. Voltammetric techniques involve perturbing the initial zero-current condition of an electrochemical cell by imposing a change in potential to the working electrode and observing the fate of the generated current. Cyclic Voltammetry is the most popular voltammetric technique used in the field of inorganic chemistry.
