Factors that control your electrochemical reaction

This section is to help you understand the main factors that affect your reaction, and how you can modify these to influence your reaction. A lot of this information is taken from our paper Making electrochemistry easily accessible to the synthetic chemist which is freely available and has proved a very popular starting point for adventures in electrochemistry! The modellers in this section are also available in spreadsheet format which allows you to use these outside of the fixed ranges.
