It should be clear by now that at least two electrodes are necessary to make a potential measurement. In potentiometry, those two electrodes are generally called the indicator electrode and the reference electrode. The indicator electrode possesses some characteristic that allows it to selectively respond to changes in the activity of the analyte being measured.
Electrodes used in potentiometric titrations. The experimental setup for potentiometric measurement comprises a set of an indicating and reference electrodes or two identical indicating electrodes, which should be treated carefully. Do not place the electrodes anywhere except attached to the electrode holder. At the end of the experiment rinse the electrodes and place each one in its housing as required. Glass electrode.
The electrode whose potential is arbitrarily fixed or is exactly known at a given constant temperature is known as a reference electrode. Using reference electrodes unknown potential of any other single electrode can be found out e. Use of Reference Electrodes:. A cell is constructed using the given electrode and reference electrode. Using a potentiometer and standard cell like Weston cell the e. By knowing the e.
The standard potential for this reaction is + V. If the cell is saturated with KCl at 25°C, the potential is + V. A calomel electrode saturated with KCl is called a saturated calomel electrode, abbreviated S.C.E. (and pictured to the right).
Show all documents Self-Dispersion of Mercury Droplets from Saturated Calomel Electrodes into Solutions When mercury metal comes in quiescent contact with aqueous solution, it disperses spontaneously into the solution in micro-droplets form J. The self-dispersion may occur from a saturated calomel electrode SCE. This report deals with quantitative determination of mercury droplets dispersed in the solution to which the SCE was immersed quiescently for a day. The detection technique was anodic striping voltammetry at a gold electrode on which amalgam was formed spontaneously. The stripping anodic current was proportional to the periods of immersing the electrode into the solution.
Electrode potential is a key parameter in the thermodynamic and kinetic processes that drive aqueous corrosion. This article discusses the complexities associated with measuring electrode potential and explains where and how to use reference electrodes to improve measurement accuracy. It describes a three-electrode approach that compensates for measurement error stemming from nonequilibrium conditions. It also examines electrode materials and behaviors and offers insights on selection and operating conditions. Protopopoff, P. Cramer, Bernard S. Covino, Jr.
The saturated calomel electrode SCE is a reference electrode based on the reaction between elemental mercury and mercury I chloride. It has been widely replaced by the silver chloride electrode , however the calomel electrode has a reputation of being more robust. The aqueous phase in contact with the mercury and the mercury I chloride Hg 2 Cl 2 , " calomel " is a saturated solution of potassium chloride in water. The electrode is normally linked via a porous frit to the solution in which the other electrode is immersed. This porous frit is a salt bridge.
Время, казалось, замедлило свой бег. - Мы терпим бедствие! - крикнул техник. - Все линии устремились к центру. С левого экрана в камеру неотрывно смотрели Дэвид и агенты Смит и Колиандер.
