half-cell potential

half-cell potential

[′haf ¦sel pə′ten·chəl]
(physical chemistry)
In electrochemical cells, the electrical potential developed by the overall cell reaction; can be considered, for calculation purposes, as the sum of the potential developed at the anode and the potential developed at the cathode, each being a half-cell.

Methods used in these experiments are by measureing half-cell potential [14,15], corrosion potential and polarization resistance [16] in accelerated corrosion condition in laboratory.
By applying electric current via a rectifier and using calomel as the standard electrode, the half-cell potential of the steel can be measured.

A voltage known as the half-cell potential develops across the interface due to an uneven distribution of anions and cations.
A very popular electrode is silver/silver choloride (ag/AgCl) because of its very low half-cell potential of approximately 220 mV and its ease of manufacturability.
