Unformatted text preview: standard electrode potential is the half-reaction potential at standard conditions (unit activities and 25EC). The half-wave potential is the applied potential at which the current level is at half that of the diffusion current. 3. A high supporting electrolyte concentration is used to minimize the effects of migration to the electrode surface by electrostatic attraction and to reduce the cell resistance which decreases the IR drop. 4. The reference electrode is placed near the working electrode to minimize the IR drop that can distort voltammograms. 5. Most organic electrode processes involve hydrogen ions. Unless buffered...
