Some of the notes below cover potentiostats in general and others are for Gamry Instruments systems specifically. Click on a link below to download the PDF version of the Application or Technical Note.
The purpose of this Application Note is to show the reader a simple experiment where we reduce Cu2+ onto an Au electrode and then oxidize Cu back off. We will then use the result to calculate a calibration factor for the crystal. Conversely, we will show you how to calculate the molar mass of the species deposited using a calibration factor.
This application note describes the software changes that you can make to slow down a Gamry Instruments’ potentiostat. Slowing down the potentiostat can improve its stability. These changes presume a working knowledge of Gamry Instruments’ Explain™ scripting language.
Of all the components of a Gamry system, the Cell Cable is the one that is constantly being flexed and exposed to corrosive environments. This test may take a couple of minutes, but if it identifies a problem, it will be time well-spent.
