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.
