Basic Electrochemical H-Cell

Choose between two electrolytes:

  • Aqueous electrolyte – C041A
  • Organic solvent-based electrolyte – C041B


This stationary solution double compartment electrochemical H-Cell is for measurements of electrodes in the form of;

  1. Rod/disc (6mm diameter)
  2. Thin film deposited on flat substrate (using wire clip)
  3. Membrane (using wire clip)
The working, counter and reference electrodes are mounted in a top casing either in the 2- or 3- electrode setup. The counter electrode is placed in a compartment seperated from the other electrodes by ion-exchange membrane ( 19mm – 25mm diameter). The electrochemical products appearing at working and counter electrode do not affect the opposite electrodes. 
The counter electrode compartment is equipped with a seperate inlet and outlet for easy filling with an electrolyte and releasing of gaseous products. It can hold standard Metal Wire Auxiliary Electrode, also square shape electrodes with sizes up to 25mm x 25mm. The cells are constructed with materials that are inert to the sample (Glass and PEEK). It fits aqueous ( EPDM O-Rings) and organic solvent ( FFKM O-Rings electrolyte requirements well. 

The construction is gas-tight and can be used when the removal and exclusion of contaminents for example oxygen and water is required by bubbling of an inert gas through the electrolyte. Once the counter electrode glass compartment is removed the cell gets the functionality of a Basic Electrochemical Cell – BEC 50ml.
