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.
