  Electrochemical potential - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Electrochemical potential is a thermodynamic measure that combines the concepts of energy stored in the form of chemical potential and electrostatics.
The electrochemical potential difference between the two sides of the membrane in mitochondria, chloroplasts, bacteria and other membranous compartments that engage in active transport involving proton pumps, is at times called a chemiosmotic potential (see chemiosmotic hypothesis).
Electrochemical potential is measured in the laboratory and field using reference electrodes.

 Electrode potential - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In electrochemistry, electrode potential (also called reversible potential difference or reversible potential difference of an electrode, and abbreviated E) is the potential difference of a half-reaction which occurs across a reversible cell made up of any electrode and a standard hydrogen electrode.
The potential of the cell as a whole is simply the combination of the two electrode potentials relative to a standard hydrogen electrode.
In this case a positive potential indicates that the equilibrium of the Fe /Fe reaction lies towards Fe, meaning that it accepts electrons from the hydrogen half-reaction.

Electrochemical noise measurements typically record the electrochemical current noise (ECN), that is the fluctuation in the current between two nominally identical electrodes, and the electrochemical potential noise (EPN), that is the fluctuation in potential of the current-measuring pair of electrodes with respect to a reference electrode.
Given that the applied potential fluctuation is also known, the impedance of the working electrode at the or each applied frequency can be calculated from the known potential fluctuation and the known current fluctuation at the or each frequency by dividing the voltage fluctuation by the current fluctuation.
signal which represents the electrochemical current noise, a measure of the impedance of the working electrode is derived from the applied current signal and the response signal, and a signal representing electrochemical potential noise is derived from the filtered signal and the derived impedance measure.

 electrochemical noise   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Electrochemical noise refers to naturally occurring fluctuations in corrosion potential and corrosion current flow.
Fluctuations in the corrosion potential can indicate a change in the thermodynamic state of corrosion processes, as for example indicated on a Pourbaix diagram*, while changes in the current noise is an indicator of the corrosion kinetics.
Electrochemical noise data can provide an indication of the type of corrosion damage that is occurring; it is widely used to distinguish between general and localized attack.

 BASIC
The half-cell potential of this electrode serves as the reference point along the potential axis by which we judge the oxidizing or reducing power of the working electrode in the vicinity of the interfacial region between the working electrode and the electrolytic solution.
Since the half-cell potential of the reference electrode is taken as the arbitrary zero point along the electrochemical potential axis, it should not be surprising that oxidations may take place at negative potentials and reductions may take place at positive potentials.
For example, the detector potential at one electrode may be set sufficiently positive to oxidize all compounds of interest and the second electrode may be set at a substantially lower oxidizing potential to only react with those compounds that are electrochemically active at these lower potentials.

 Introduction
Electrochemical corrosion monitoring is based on the assumption that corrosion is basically an electrochemical process that can be monitored through the measurement of potential and current that characterizes the corrosion process.
As described earlier, corrosion is an electrochemical process in which electrons are transferred between the anodic and cathodic area on the corroding metal resulting in oxidation (corrosion) of the metal at the anode and reduction of cations in the fluid at the cathode.
This arrangement minimizes the potential difference between the electrodes, enabling the voltmeter to operate on its optimal sensitivity range as the overall accuracy of measurement is limited by the resolution of the voltmeter.

Another characteristic of an electrochemical cell is that the oxidation and reduction half–reactions occur at surfaces called electrodes.
So that electrode potentials could be tabulated, one half–cell was defined as having an electrode potential of exactly 0 V. This half–cell is called the standard hydrogen electrode (SHE).
The standard cell potential is the difference between the reduction potential of the cathode and the reduction potential of the anode.

For this purpose, a gradient of the electrochemical potential is set up inside a porous material, which serves as an active electrode in an electrolytic cell.
This potential gradient leads to a position dependent rate of electrochemical dissolution or deposition of the preform material and thus to a graded porosity.

The energy available from the electrical potential difference across the membrane, plus from the proton gradient across the membrane, can be harnessed for secondary active transport, or cotransport.
Even K+ transport, which sometimes appears to be passive (down its electrochemical potential gradient) depends on the proton pump (and hence active transport) because it requires the electrogenic component of the membrane potential to balance the K+ concentrations gradient.
