Microelectrode - 6 mm Dia. Glass Body

  • $ 44000

This is a single core Microelectrode in which a wire of electrode material (Platinum) is melted into the glass body on about 5 mm from the terminal end. The terminal end of the microelectrode is polished to a mirror finish, exposing solely the cross-sectional surface of the wire.
It well fits aqueous and organic solvent electrolyte requirements, except highly alkaline solutions, due to the limited glass chemical resistance.

Application note:
Typically, the microelectrode is immersed in the ion-conducting solution as a working electrode. An electric current is passed between the working electrode and the counter electrode for a certain amount of time. After the experiment, the electrode should be washed several times with ethanol. If the microelectrode was used as a current collector with other electrode material, it should be polished down to the mirror surface after the experiment is completed. Store the microelectrode in the glass tube sealed with an O-Ring (all included in the package). Instruction on maintenance is provided on the Electrode Polishing Kit product page.
