Dr. Miles Authors Paper in Journal of Chemical Education

March 27, 2014

Associate Professor of Chemistry Deon Miles recently wrote an article published in the Journal of Chemical Education entitled “Run-D.M.C.: A Mnemonic Aid for Explaining Mass Transfer in Electrochemical Systems” (J. Chem. Educ. 2013, 90, 1649?1653). The article focused on the use of a novel mnemonic device relating the well-known hip-hop group, Run-D.M.C., to an important concept in electrochemistry. Specifically, the three modes of mass transport to a working electrode surface are diffusion, migration, and convection. Using the mnemonic aid “Run-D.M.C.” helps students recall these different processes in electrochemical systems.
