Experiments in Electroanalytical Chemistry

This website offers educators a set of eight classical electroanalytical experiments suitable for use in a quantitative analysis, instrumental analysis, or electrochemistry course. The materials should be useful for advanced… Read more »

Electrochemical Detection of Phenol Utilizing a Synthesized Sonogel-carbon Zirconium Oxide

This experiment is designed for senior undergraduate students in an inorganic chemistry course. Students are asked to synthesize a sonogel-carbon electrode that is modified with a ZrO2 sol-gel and to… Read more »

Analytical Electrochemistry: A Laboratory Manual

This labware module contains directions for seven experiments in analytical electrochemistry. The experiments are designed to illustrate fundamentals of electrode reactions as applied to readily accessible redox reactants. They provide… Read more »

Study of Electrode Mechanism by Cyclic Voltammetry

This lab experiment uses cyclic voltammetry to determine the concentration of acetaminophen (active ingredient of Tylenol) in a children’s pain relief elixir and to study the pH dependent mechanism of… Read more »

Synthesis of a Sonogel-Carbon Modified Sensor Electrode with Titanium Oxide (TiO2) to Detect Catechol

This experiment demonstrates cyclic voltammetry, surface modification, selectivity, and bioanalysis in assaying catechols in the presence of ascorbic acid. Pre- or post-lab questions are included, along with sample student data… Read more »

Electrochemistry and Detection of Organic and Biological Molecules such as Catechols

This ASDL online article describes a lab experiment whereby students learn how to prepare a conducting thin-film polymer electrode for the analysis of catechol and the effect of ascorbic acid… Read more »
