Ag AgCl Reference Electrode Silver Silver Chloride Φ6*140mm Glass Rod

In electrochemistry, in order for a specific reaction to occur, a stable electric potential needs to be applied to the working electrode. The potential of the working electrode should always be accurately controlled. This is why a reference electrode is needed as a potential reference standard. Common reference electrodes include Silver Silver Chloride Ag/AgCl reference electrode, saturated calomel electrode,Hg/HgO reference electrode, Hg/Hg2SO4 reference electrode and Non aqueous Ag+ reference electrode,etc.

The silver-silver chloride (Ag/AgCl) electrode is the most commonly used reference electrode. Compared with calomel electrodes that use mercury and its salts, Ag/AgCl electrodes are more environmentally friendly. Its electrode potential also has sufficient stability, reliability and reproducibility.

Special attention should be paid to maintenance and storage when using Ag/AgCl reference electrode. Before use rinse it with deionized water. If air bubbles are present around the porous frit, flick the tip several times to remove them. For cleaning use detergent (dish washing detergent with water), alcohols or acetone and rinse it with deionized water at the end.Compared with other reference electrodes, Ag/AgCl reference electrode is more sensitive to light. Therefore, when not in use for a short period of time, it is necessary to remove the rubber cap at the lower end of the Ag/AgCl reference electrode and soak it in a dark cup filled with saturated potassium chloride solution for storage. When it is not used for a long time, it is necessary to add a new filling solution to the Ag/AgCl reference electrode, cover it with a rubber cap, and store it away from light.

What is the Gas Diffusion Layer (GDL)?

      The GDL is a porous structure made by weaving carbon fibers into a carbon cloth (e.g. GDL-CT and ELAT) or by pressing carbon fibers together into a carbon paper.  Many of the standard GDLs that are produced today come with a Micro Porous layer (MPL) and hydrophobic treatment (PTFE).  The MPL and PTFE help with the contact to the membrane and with water management.  The MPL typically provides a smooth layer with plenty of surface area for catalyst and good contact with the membrane.  The MPL often uses PTFE as a binder that increases hydrophobicity, which helps keep the water within the membrane from escaping – drying out the membrane and causing higher resistance (lower performance).  There is often an additional PTFE coating on the MPL surface to further augment this. What Exactly Does a Gas Diffusion Layer (GDL) Do? GDL essentially acts as an electrode that facilitates diffusion of reactants across the catalyst layered membrane. The surface area and porosity of the GDL is what

Platinum Wire Ring Counter Electrode Φ0.5*230mm

Platinum is an inert metal and does not participate in the electrode reaction itself, so it is the first choice for the counter electrode. One of the important parameters of the counter electrode is its surface area. The counter electrode must have a large enough area to support the current conduction generated on the working electrode. Platinum electrodes include platinum sheet electrodes, platinum wire electrodes, and platinum mesh electrodes. The platinum wire electrode has a relatively small area ,which is suitable for use in combination with a disc-shaped working electrode. The platinum wire electrode has a variety of shapes and structures, which can be bent according to the length of the platinum wire to be used with various types of electrochemical cells. The insulating rod material of the platinum wire electrode can be PTFE or PEEK rod. As the working electrode undergoes an oxidation or reduction reaction, a gas evolution reaction or a reverse reaction of the working electrode

How to do when the mercury oxide reference electrode broken?

Q: How to do when the mercury oxide reference electrode broken? A:  If the electrode is broken, please be sure to operate in accordance with the laboratory hazardous chemical treatment method to avoid the diffusion of mercury oxide, which is a toxic material. Description of the mercury oxide reference electrode: The mercury-mercury oxide(Hg/HgO) reference electrode is mainly used in alkaline solutions. It is an electrode composed of metallic mercury and its insoluble salt HgO and 1M KOH solution. Its electrode potential is 0.098V (25°C). The salt bridge of the Hg/HgO reference electrode is made of glass and PTFE, and the size is φ6*70mm. This size can be matched with various types of Dek Research electrochemical cells. Special attention should be paid to maintenance and storage when using the Hg/HgO reference electrode. The substance containing mercury oxide is a toxic substance, and the salt bridge solution is corrosive. Please strictly abide by the relevant laboratory safety regulati
