Abstract:This work reports on the stability of quasi-reference electrode (QRE) material candidates for use in a NaCl-CaCl2 molten salt eutectic at 823 K in comparison to that of the conventional Ag(I)/Ag reference electrode in a mullite sheath with cyclic voltammetry (CV) and an internal reference of the cerium redox couple (Ce(0)/Ce() via CeCl3 addition). In addition, effects of QRE size, working electrode surface area, and scan rate were investigated for potential QRE candidates. A tungsten rod (1.5 mm) has been dete… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
