[Summary of the lecture] In this lecture, chemical technologies for conversion of chemical energy to electric power and electric power to chemical energy will be explained on the basis of environmental protection and sustainability.
[Aim of the lecture] The aims are to understand energy and resource conversion chemistry based on chemical thermodynamics, electrochemistry, catalysis and kinetics, and to learn advance chemistry for various cells and electrosynthesis systems.
By the end of this course, students acquire the following ability:
(1) Ability to understand rule and mechanism for mutal conversion of chemical energy and electric power.
(2) Ability to understand relationship between chemical potential, chemical thermodynamics, electrochemistry, kinetics, catalysis and fuel cell reaction , electrosynthesis reaction.
(3) Ability to understand overview of energy and resource conversion.
chemical potential, electric power, mutual conversion, fuel cell reactions, electrosynthesis reactions

Practice problems for confirming the level of understanding (85%), level of lecture participation (15%) which decided by brief problems and discussion in every lectures.
The condition of the study will not be made, but it is desirable to study Physical Chemistry II (Chemical thermodynamics), Physical Chemistry III (Kinetics) and Electrochemistry for well understanding.
