Student heating test tube in chemistry lab

Electrochemical Workstation Zahner IM6

BAS C-1B Cell Stand

Equipped with a programmable Potentiostat, a pair of high precision amplifiers for current and potential, a flexible frequency generator/analyzer and four slots for additional input and output modules are designed for nearly all measurement situations in the electrochemistry lab. Specially designed for spectrum analysis in the electrochemical field, the modular hardware concept of the IM6 allows you to configure the IM6 for applications far beyond impedance spectroscopy.

  • integrated CAD and word processing software and many other acquisition & analysis methods

Cyclic voltammetry is a versatile electroanalytical technique for the study of electroactive species. CV consists of linearly cycling the potential of an electrode immersed in an unstirred solution while measuring the resulting current. Thus, a voltammogram is a display of current versus potential. The most useful aspect of this technique is its application to the qualitative diagnosis of electrode reactions.

The Cell Stand features magnetic stirring and selectable gas purge rate for the sample. The gas control provides for blanketing the sample when active purging is not occurring. The magnetic stirrer controls mass transport to the electrode surface and mixing for titrations. The lift arm with detachable cell top allows removal and replacement of the cell vial. The cell is enclosed in a Faraday Cage to minimize electrical interference.
