Description/Abstract

A welcome addition to the list of electrochemical tools, microelectrodes improve the quality of experimental data and allow measurements impossible a few years ago

Over the past ten years microelectrodes - also known as ultramicroelectrodes - have had a tremendous impact in electrochemistry. They have greatly improved the quality and analysis of experimental data and enabled a range of new experiments to be performed. Compared with conventional electrodes, signal distortions are significantly reduced while the rate of transfer of molecules to the electrode (mass transport) is dramatically enhanced. These improvements have extended the applications of electrochemical techniques to non-conducting media such as organic solvents, allowed electrochemical measurements on the sub-microsecond time scale, and promoted steady state techniques.
