Cyclic Voltammetry at an Electrode

Model ID: 12849


Cyclic voltammetry is a common analytical electrochemical technique, where the potential at a working electrode is swept over a range and back again while the current is recorded. The current-voltage waveform, referred to as a voltammogram, provides information about the reactivity and mass transport properties of an electrolyte. For large electrodes, the model is simplified to a 1D geometry by assuming that all mass transport takes place perpendicular to the electrode. The Electroanalysis interface is used to couple mass transfer with an electrode reaction.
