Bulk Electrolysis Cell (MF-1056)


This cell is designed for the complete electrolysis of a solution species. Typical uses include determination of the number of electrons transferred per molecule, the absolute amount of an analyte, or electrosynthesis of a small amount (typically milligram quantities) of a new material. Components of the complete package are shown in the figure below. A water-jacketed version is also available (MF-1060).

  • Bulk electrolysis of electroactive species in solution
  • Large surface-area reticulated vitreous carbon working electrode
  • Optional platinum gauze working electrode
  • Use for small-scale (< 75 mL) electrosynthesis studies
  • Monitor extent of reaction using BASi® stationary voltammetry electrodes
