Electrocatalysis Research: Total Solutions

These packages provide a complete solution for the experimental demands of electro catalysis Researchers.

Two options, ECAT-Complete and ECAT-Compact are currently available. Each package contains a complete electrochemical cell, a rotating ring disk electrode setup, a bipotentiostat and a powerful NOVA software to control all the system components.

Typical Applications

  • Mass-transport properties with forced convection condition
  • Electrochemical kinetics studies
  • Electro catalyst material testing
  • Mechanistic information: detection of intermediates through collection and shielding experiments (RRDE)

Key Features

  • RRDE cell designed for the experimental needs of Electrocatalysis Researchers
  • High precision and ultra-low noise electrode rotation from 100 to 10,000 RPM
  • Powerful NOVA software featuring built-in Levich and Koutecký-Levich analysis methods
  • Accurate and reliable electrochemical instrumentation

Bipotentiostatic measurements in hydrodynamic conditions: Oxygen reduction reaction with the RRDE.

For versatile electrocatalysis research with superior experimental capabilities

  • Autolab PGSTAT302N loaded with additional functional modules
  • RRDE rotator with GC/Pt electrode tip
  • Unitrode pH and temperature sensor
  • Complete RRDE electrochemical cell
  • EIS and true linear voltammetry
  • Dual-mode bipotentiostat
  • NOVA electrochemical software


For high-quality standard measurements including those under forced convection conditions

  • Autolab PGSTAT204 with bipotentiostat module
  • RRDE rotator with GC/Pt electrode tip
  • Complete RRDE electrochemical cell
  • Dual-mode bipotentiostat
  • NOVA electrochemical software

Experimental Method

  • Four-electrode setup (Pt disk/Pt ring)
  • Excess of reactant (O2 gas) in the electrolyte
  • The electrode tip rotated at several rates
  • NOVA software couples the control of the electrode rotator and the bipotentiostat
  • Disk – LSV is applied from zero overpotential to a masstransport limiting potential region
  • Ring – The potential is fixed at a value where the product or intermediate will react

Data and Analysis

  • The hydrodynamic analysis command in NOVA software produces Levich and Koutecký Levich plots from the disk electrode current.
  • The esearcher specifies a fixed potential value at which the data is selected for these plots.
  • Linear regression is applied to every plot.
  • Kinetic rate constant for the reaction, the diffusion coefficient for the reactant or the number of electrons transferred can be calculated based on Levich and Koutecký-Levich theory.
