BM EC 7mm x 7mm - Bottom Mount Electrochemical Cell
This is a stationary solution voltammetry cell for measurements of the 7x7 mm2 sample. The sample is loaded from the bottom via classical screw mount, while counter or/and reference electrodes are mounted in a top casing (either 2-, or 3-electrode setup). The cell elements are constructed with materials that are inert to the sample (glass and PEEK). It well fits aqueous (EPDM O-Rings) and organic solvent (FFKM O-Rings) electrolyte requirements. The construction is gas-tight and can be used when the removal and exclusion of contaminants such as oxygen and water is required by bubbling of an inert gas through the electrolyte.
Another version of this cell equipped with magnetic mount instead of screws is available here.
The reference electrode tip should be placed close to the sample surface. This will ensure a negligible potential drop throughout the electrolyte solution for low-current experiment. Various auxiliary electrodes are suitable for this cell including metal wire and metal foil electrodes as well as graphite rod. The bubbling of gas through the solution must be stopped prior to experiment. For troubleshooting instruction see the redox.me blog post.
