Kids Encyclopedia Facts
English chemists John Daniell (left), and Michael Faraday (right), are both credited as founders of electrochemistry today.

Electrochemistry is a kind of chemistry that studies chemical reactions that use or make electricity. Reactions like this happen at electrodes which are made from something that conducts electricity, and put in an electrolyte. An electrolyte is a solution that has ions in it.

Electrochemistry was "invented" at the same time as the voltaic pile; the first kind of electric battery.
