Effect of Scan Rate in Cyclic Voltammetry

In a cyclic voltammetry experiment, scanning the potential in both directions provides with the opportunity to explore the electrochemical behavior of species generated at the electrode. This is a distinct advantage of cyclic voltammetry over other voltammetric techniques. The illustration … Continue reading

Cyclic Voltammetry

In cyclic voltammetry (CV) we scan the potential in both the cathodic and anodic directions. The illustration below shows a typical potential-excitation signal (a) in which we first scan the potential to more positive values, oxidizing R to O, and … Continue reading
