The department has numerous home-built electrochemical set-ups (H- and flow-cell types) to investigate electrochemical reactions. These systems are often coupled to other analytical techniques, such as gas chromatography, for in situ or operando measurements. Below is a description of some of the equipment available.
Online Electrochemical Systems
Electrochemical setup designed to identify and quantify the gaseous products during a reaction in real time. Our current online electrochemical systems for product analysis integrate electrochemical cells and product analysis equipment including gas chromatographs.
- Multiple models of potentiostats with multiple channel detection and booster options are available. Versatile software for data analysis.
- Metrohm Autolab PGSTAT302N
- BioLogic SP-300
Differential Electrochemical Mass Spectrometry (DEMS) combines electrochemical cell experimentation with mass spectrometry.
- Hiden Analytical HPR-40
Gas and liquid chromatography (GC) devices with different analyte detectors are available:
- Agilent 7890A for gaseous product analysis.
- Liquid GC, Schimadzu GC-2010 Plus with auto-sampler attachment for liquid product analysis.
Both are equipped with thermal Conductivity Detector (TCD) and Flame Ionisation (FID) Detectors.
High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for separating, identifying, and quantifying components in electrochemistry.
