Abstract:

We have shown that geometrical considerations in the design of immersed thin layer electrochemical cells are important in the satisfactory performance of voltammetric experiments in solutions of high specific resistivity. In this paper, practical cell design and experimental results for a variety of systems are considered. In summary, we feel that reasonable care in the design of thin layer cells leads to the quantitative use of voltammetry and coulometry in systems with high specific resistivities. In the end, the effort is not much more than that required for conventional cyclic voltammetry, whereas the advantages of analysis using thin layer techniques are greater than those in conventional voltammetry.
