Testing For Oxidation

For this procedure you will need:

  • Freshly prepared buffer solution
  • Solution to be measured
  • Freshly plated electrode
  • Potentiostat with electrode adapter
  • AfterMath installed on a computer

This procedure will show oxidization of a compound and can generate standard curves. A picture of the potentiostat and connected electrode is shown at the bottom of the page.

  1. Place the plated electrode into the adapter (the use of a blank spacer may be needed)
  2. Place the connected electrode into the buffer solution and take a blank reading through AfterMath
  3. Add the solution to be measured and test for oxidation through AfterMath
  4. Dispose of all solutions and electrodes according to the policies in your facility
