Electrochemical Study and Determination of Electroactive Species with Screen-Printed Electrodes
Martín-Yerga, Daniel; Costa Rama, Estefanía; Costa García, Agustín
Journal of Chemical Education, v93 n7 p1270-1276 Jul 2016
A lab appropriate to introduce voltammetric techniques and basic electrochemical parameters is described in this work. It is suitable to study theoretical concepts of electrochemistry in an applied way for analytical undergraduate courses. Two electroactive species, hexaammineruthenium and dopamine, are used as simple redox systems. Screen-printed electrodes are used in order to allow the students to focus on the electrochemistry and avoid tedious instrumentation preparation. The analytical determination of the species studied with sensitive techniques such as differential-pulse or square-wave voltammetry is also performed.
