Electrochemistry

 


Custom-made combinatorial physical vapour deposition apparatus from PVD Products (USA) for the synthesis of 64 electrocatalysts employing up to four different magnetrons.  This allows for the synthesis and simultaneous electrochemical characterisation of binary, tertiary, and quaternary electrocatalysts.  Hotspots can be further refined by sputtering onto 16 (4 x 4) glassy carbon disk inserts, for electrochemical characterisation by RDE (Rotating Disk Electrode) and RRDE (Rotating Ring Disk Electrode) studies.
