A Galvanic cell was designed based on the acid-base neutralization reaction by undergraduates according to the electrochemical theory in physical chemistry. By carrying out the comprehensive experiments, the learning interest of undergraduates on physical chemistry was inspired. The understanding on the principle of electrochemistry was enhanced. In addition, the undergraduates also established an intuitive understanding on scientific research by combining the experiments with the theory. It is helpful to broaden the academic horizons of the undergraduates and strengthen their ability to apply theoretical knowledge to practice. The work is a beneficial exploration to innovate the teaching mode of physical chemistry.

Key words: Physical chemistry, Comprehensive experiments, Acid-base neutralization reaction, Galvanic cell design
