Spectroelectrochemical Cell

Spectroelectrochemistry couples the ability of an electrochemical experiment to change the oxidation state of a solution species with the structural and quantitative capabilities of spectroscopy. This cell is the combination of a thin-layer electrochemical vessel and a quartz cuvette (two path lengths are available, 1 mm and 0.5 mm) designed to be used in a standard UV-VIS spectrometer.

  • Monitor in real time the chromic changes associated with a reduction/oxidation reaction including reactant, intermediate(s) and/or final product(s) by spectroscopic means.
  • Platinum and Gold mini-grid electrodes are available.
  • Uses standard BASi® reference electrode (purchased separately)
  • Kit includes:
    • Thin-layer quartz cuvette
    • Platinum or gold minigrid working electrode
    • Platinum wire auxiliary electrode
    • Teflon cap
    • Chemically inert plastic purge tube
  • Additional electrodes not included:
    • MF-2052 - RE-5B Ag/AgCl Reference Electrode (1 EA)
    • MW-2030 - RE-6 Ag/AgCl Reference Electrode (1 EA)
    • MF-2062 – Ag/Ag+ Non-Aqueous Reference Electrode
