Jacketed Standard Electrochemical Dual Holder Cell
This is a stationary solution standard electrochemical (electrolytic) cell for measurements of electrodes in a form of: a) plate, b) foil, c) thin film deposited on flat substrate and d) free-standing films. The working electrode is installed in the sample holder (included in the setup). Other sample holders are available on request. The counter electrode of choice is installed in a counter electrode holder (included in the setup) and separated from the other electrodes by a membrane. The Ag/AgCl or Ag/Ag+ reference electrode (other types are available on request) is mounted in the top casing if 3-electrode setup is required. The electrochemically active electrodes (working, counter and reference) and membranes are not included in the setup. A temperature of an electrolyte can be controlled by circulation of a fluid agent between thermostatic bath and the jacketed vial. The cell has two spare ports for connection of e.g. thermometer, Clark electrode, pH meter electrode, or other 6 mm dia. electrode/probe.
The cell elements are constructed with materials that are inert to the sample (glass and PEEK). It well fits aqueous (FKM/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. The non-jacketed model without the temperature control is available here.
The reference electrode tip should be placed close to a working electrode center. This will ensure a low potential drop throughout the electrolyte solution for low-current experiment. Various 6 mm dia. auxiliary electrodes are suitable for this cell including metal wire, Graphite rod or Glassy Carbon rod.
