The impact on the discovery of Raman effect
is still relevant nowadays. Such is so, that its combination with
electrochemistry improving the analytical features of each technique
independently is filling scientific magazines with new articles. One can only wonder what would have been the achievements of Mr. C.V Raman if he has had an integrated instrument with a dedicated software such as DropView SPELEC. To
have straight forward tools and procedures is a distinctive trademark
in all Metrohm DropSens sofwares: Discover possibilities offered by the
use of mixed techniques available in our Bipotentiostats. Enjoy the reading!
The power of the Bipotentiostat
is a portable (Bi)Potentiostat/Galvanostat/Impedance Analyzer (EIS).
This means that you can use any of the available electrochemical
techniques (25) with a cell configuration consisting of 2 WE, 1 CE and 1 REF including EIS thanks to the MultiplEIS® technology. Aside of this, the Bipotentiostat capability in µStat-i 400 also allows you to work even with different techniques in each of the 2 WE
such as LSV+AD and CV+AD. Without the need of any scripting or
programming, just by making use of the mixed techniques available, you
could easily perform field-effect transistor (FET) measurements or
electrocatalysis applications among others. If you want to save time and do these bipotentiostat experiments in more channels, then check µStat-i MultiX!
The importance of a dedicated spectroelectrochemical software
a series of short videos we would like to introduce you to the
dedicated spectroelectrochemical tools available in DropView SPELEC
software. Just one click will make the difference in your research: “Spectra vs EC” allows you to easily track the evolution of optical signal with potential. Correlate the electrochemical signal with the Raman/UVVIS/NIR optical response in a single graph, providing outstanding information for the complete understanding of the electrochemical reaction.
Check a new open access article recently published using a "SPELEC UV-VIS" system for the detection of acetaldehyde in wine. In this article it is clearly shown how the combination of spectroscopy and electrochemistry
improves the analytical features that both techniques have separately.
As the optical information collected is only associated with
acetaldehyde, it avoids the contribution of the interferents also
present in wines. The spectroelectrochemical monitoring allows the easy
quantification of acetaldehyde, saving cost and time.
