Course Description

Application of electric field to chemical processes will be lectured from fundamentals to applications. Here, the method to generate high voltage, measurement, safety, and applications to separation and material synthesis will be lectured.


Coursework will be graded based on the reports.

Course Goals

Students will gain knowledge about application of electric field to variety of applications based on fundamentals.

Course Topics

Theme Class number of times Description
Fundamentals of high-voltage technology 3 High voltage generation, measurement, application, and safety, which are useful to apply high voltage to chemical process, will be lectured.
Fundamentals and application of non-equilibrium plasma to separation operations 3 Based on fundamentals, application of plasma generated in vacuum conditions to separation operations and synthesis of materials will be lectured.
Application of non-uniform electric field 3 Application of extremely non-uniform electric field will be lectured. For example, electrostatic precipitator and dielectrophoresis will be explained.
Application of atmospheric pressure plasma to separation operations and material syntheses 3 Method to generate arc plasma, plasma torch, and dielectric barrier discharge will be explained. Also, application using these features will be lectured.
Electrochemistry 2 Electrochemistry in solutions from general ones with direct low-voltage to unique ones with high-frequency high-voltage will be lectured.
Confirmation of study achievement 1 Feedback of evaluation results for reports and exercises.
