Abstract:

Platinum electrodes have been used by biologists and geologists to map variations in the level of oxidative degradation in the field and to draw conclusions about electron limits of particular environments based on assumptions as to actual reactions occurring on the platinum Pt surface. This research was done to determine if the Pt surface can be calibrated for its reaction to other seawater constituents, then perhaps the Pt electrode can be used to measure one specific redox reaction and further define the natural seawater environment.
