An experiment using a quartz-crystal microbalance (QCM) with impedance (QCM-I) is a unique technique popular in characterizing biological films that are structurally complex.
Physical Electrochemistry Techniques
The Applications and Technical Notes below cover, broadly, "electrochemistry" from what a potentiostat is to advanced physical electrochemistry techniques. Click on a link below to download the PDF version of the Application or Technical Note.
This application note is part 1 of a series of notes introducing Gamry’s spectroelectrochemistry system. Spectroscopy has a wide field of application, especially in analytical chemistry. Various types of materials can be investigated andified by studying interactions with electromagnetic radiation.
Tracking Biofilms Using an Electrochemical Quartz Crystal Microbalance Introduction Biofilms are microbes attached to a surface. The microbes form a film on the surface, giving rise to the name biofilm. This Application Note deals specifically with bacterial biofilms that convert chemicals to electrical current on electrodes
Cyclic Voltammetry (CV) is inarguably the most popular electrochemical technique. It owes its well-deserved reputation to its ability to deduce reaction mechanisms with relatively low-cost equipment and quick experimentation.
