Abstract

The universal electrochemical cell stand 10, as shown in the figure, suitable to be used in studies involving electrochemical cells, consists of a base 12, back 14, support rod 16 and a top section 18. A presaturation vessel 20 screws into the bottom of top section 18. The presaturation vessel 20 is used to saturate the purge gas with supporting electrolyte. An electrochemical cell 22 also screws into the bottom of top section 18. Also in top section 18 are two receptacles 24A and 24B with electrical connections thereto into which the counter 26 and reference electrode 28 can be either screwed or snapped from the bottom side. The top section 18 also has a standard taper opening 30 into which a variety of working electrodes 32 can be inserted.

Universal Electrochemical Cell Stand

The universal electrochemical cell stand 10, as shown in the figure, suitable to be used in studies involving electrochemical cells, consists of a base 12, back 14, support rod 16 and a top section 18. A presaturation vessel 20 screws into the bottom of top section 18. The presaturation vessel 20 is used to saturate the purge gas with supporting electrolyte. An electrochemical cell 22 also screws into the bottom of top section 18. Also in top section 18 are two receptacles 24A and 24B with electrical connections thereto into which the counter 26 and reference electrode 28 can be either screwed or snapped from the bottom side. The top section 18 also has a standard taper opening 30 into which a variety of working electrodes 32 can be inserted. A toggle switch 34, located at the front of section 18, is connected to a two-way solenoid gas valve and the necessary plumbing in order to carry out the presaturation and purge/blanket operations. A second opening (not shown) on the top of section 18 can be provided so that a solution may be added to or removed from the attached bottom of cell 22. The necessary electrical connections to the electrochemical instrument is made through a single multi-pin connector at the back of the stand 10. The working electrode 32 plugs into a banana jack on the back of the stand 10 which is interconnected to the multi-pin connector. Connection to an inert gas supply is via copper or stainless steel tubi...
