Frequently Asked Questions - 3. Electrodes
Many electrodes which are mentioned on this site or in publications of Dr. Flechsig and his group, can be purchased from Gensoric GmbH. For more information, please contact Christoph.
The datasheet of ThermaLab™-System can be found here.
The working electrodes are designed and tested to have an surface area up to 2 cm2. Nevertheless we think that there's an opportunity to achieve a bigger area, as long as the electrodes keeps a wired-design. Please ask Chrristoph.
The temperature-different can achieve at least 60°C. The resulting temperature-difference depends on the used electrode. To find the right electrode, please contact Christoph.
The temperature-precision depends of the used electrode and the system-settings. The resolution can be set from <0.1°C (@ ΔT about 10°C) up to 10°C (@ ΔT about 600°C) with an accuracy of about 10% of the temperature-range.
Yes, you can use heated electrodes in gas-phase-reaction. But be careful. Our electrodes are not designed and thought to be used in gas-phase-reactions. We observed a glow while heating platinum-electrodes at air.
Yes, you can use every electrode you want, even this electrode fits to the connector. For heating-purposes our system requires an working-electrode with two connectors. For more details, please contact Christoph.
Yes you need a counter- and a reference-electrode to perform electrochemical measurements.
As long as you use ThermaLab™-System the way it is though for and handle with care like every other laboratory device, NO you can't be harmed.
