Transcript of A Brief History of Electrochemistry

A Brief History of Electro-Chemistry
17th Century
Otto von Guericke developed static electricity by applying friction to a sulfur ball.
When the ball rotated, Guericke applied a bristle to the ball. The bristle produced an electric spark which proved that like charges repelled each other.
William Nicholson
Succeeds in separating water into
2 Years Later...
Circa: 1800
William Cruickshank develops the first battery capable of mass production.
Luigi Galvani
Nineteen Hundred's
LeClanche Cell
The LeClanche Cell
The LeClanche cell was developed by Georges LeClanche in 1866.
Battery consisted of: Zinc anode, Magnesium Dioxide cathode, dipped in an Ammonium Chloride solution.
Once developed, the LeClanche Dry Cell became a popular battery used to power early telephones.
18th Century
Galvanic Cell
Luigi Galvani developed the Galvani cell by reacting two different metals with a nerve receptor on a frog's leg.
Frog's leg twitched upward indicating that there is something called "Animal Electricity".
Technically, became the world's first battery.
Voltaic Cell
Alessandro Volta develops the Voltaic Cell by redefining Galvani's "Animal electricity" into metal-metal electricity.

Johann William Ritter
Invents electroplating, thus leading up to the invention of a battery capable of mass production.
