Basic overview of the working principle of a potentiostat/galvanostat (PGSTAT) – electrochemical cell setup

Huvuddokument

A basic overview of the working principle of a potentiostat/galvanostat is presented. Depending on the application, the connections of the instrument to the electrochemical cell can be (or must be) set up in different ways. Below, the three commonly used electrochemical cell setups are discussed together with the role of the electrodes used in electrochemical measurements.
