ISMET Newsletter: mini-training series
Over the next year Xochitl Dominguez-Benetton from the Flemish Institute of Technological Research-VITO (Belgium) and Bernardino Virdis from the Advanced Water Management Centre, The University of Queensland (Australia) will provide some basic tutorials covering selected electrochemical techniques used to study biofilm electrochemistry. Ranging from cyclic voltammetry to electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, these tutorials are intended to provide step-by-step practical guidelines on the choice of measurement settings and the correct assessment of electrochemical responses.
1. Ohmic Drop Correction: Basic Aspects
The journey is starting with a tutorial on how to perform Ohmic drop corrections to account for uncompensated resistance due to electrolyte resistivity, electrodes positioning and geometry.
2. Practical Aspects of Cyclic Voltammetry
Here you will learn how to extract some relevant parameters useful to investigate microbially-catalysed electrochemical reactions at electrodes.
