A redox electrode is an electrode made from electron-conductive material and characterized by high chemical stability in the solution under test. It is used for measuring the redox potential of a specific redox system in solution, and for electrochemical studies (investigation of electrochemical kinetics of interfacial processes).
Additional recommended knowledge
The correlation of an electrode potential and redox system composition can be described by the Nernst equation:
There are two general classes of redox electrodes:
