The Variation of Electrochemical Cell Potentials with Temperature
Peckham, Gavin D.; McNaught, Ian J.
Journal of Chemical Education, v88 n6 p782-783 Jun 2011
Electrochemical cell potentials have no simple relationship with temperature but depend on the interplay between the sign and magnitude of the isothermal temperature coefficient, dE[degrees]/dT, and on the magnitude of the reaction quotient, Q. The variations in possible responses of standard and non-standard cell potentials to changes in the temperature, topics that are not discussed in any current textbook, are described. (Contains 1 table.)
