WaveDriver Mini-USB Cell Cable with Reference Breakout
fits cell port on WaveDriver 10/20/40/100/200; this cable is NOT recommended for EIS experiments
Our unique UV/Vis spectroelectrochemical cell features a patterned "honeycomb" electrode which mounts easily inside a thin-layer quartz cuvette. A special cuvette cap securely holds the honeycomb electrode card and a separate reference electrode in the proper position within the cuvette.
- 1.7 mm electrode path length
- 12.5 x 12.5 x 45.0 mm3 cuvette dimensions
- Compatible in aqueous and non-aqueous electrolyte
- Generic cell cable enables cell kit compatibility with ANY potentiostat
See "Description" tab below for additional information.
Complete Spectroelectrochemistry Cell Kit: The Honeycomb Spectroelectrochemical Cell Kit (AKSTCKIT3) includes 1 quartz cuvette, 1 cell cap, 1 platinum honeycomb electrode, 2 gold honeycomb electrodes, and a low profile Ag/AgCl reference electrode. Our honeycomb electrode chip contains an onboard working, counter and reference electrode. If an alternative reference electrode is needed, we offer a cell cable with a separate reference breakout lead (RRTPE05 and ACP2E09) used with the WaveNow and WaveDriver respectively where a separate low profile reference electrode fits into the cell cap.

Electrode Design: The working electrode is perforated with a honeycomb pattern of holes which allow light to pass through the electrode. The active surface of the working electrode includes a metal coating along the inner walls of the holes. As light passes through the holes, the beam grazes the walls of each hole. Normally the path length of the electrochemically generated species is the diffusion layer near the surface of the electrode. With our honeycomb design the effective path length is the length of the honeycomb card (1.7 mm). As a result, molecules with low extinction coefficients are more easily detectable. Our quartz cuvette is slotted to fit the honeycomb electrode card. The slot also prevents electrogenerated species from diffusing away from the electrode during a spectroelectrochemistry experiment, further improving UV/Vis absorbance.
Universal Compatibility: The honeycomb electrode is screen printed on a ceramic card, allowing it to be used for both aqueous and non-aqueous solvents. The dimensions of our slotted quartz cuvette is 12.5 x 12.5 x 45.0 mm3, which is the standard size for most UV/Vis spectrometer cuvette holders. While Pine offers a unique cable that connects the mini-B USB of the honeycomb cell to our WaveNow and WaveDriver potentiostats, we also offer a generic cable with a mini-B USB to 4 banana jacks that can connect our honeycomb cell to ANY potentiostat.
