1Electrochemical System

An electrochemical system is a term used to describe a cell, apparatus, or general setup consisting of two or more electrodes Electrode  spatially separated and distributed throughout one or more ionically-conductive media, or electrolytes, Electrolyte while also being in electrical contact with one another via a separate current path (often containing a potentiostat). Potentiostat The electrodes in an electrochemical system undergo oxidation Oxidation and reduction Reduction reactions, with movement of electrons producing current Current traveling through the current path simultaneously with movement of ions through the media producing an overall balance of charge transfer within the system.
