The researchers used an electrochemical cell as a flow reactor, separating the gaseous CO2 input and oxygen output from the liquid electrolyte catalyst with gas-diffusion electrodes.
Most instruments are general SPMs that have been configured with all electrochemical cell and other accessories, but Heka's El ProScan instrument, which debuted late in 2006, is designed specifically for ECSPM.
If the electrochemical cell is properly constructed, the removal of material will cause the formation of a neck in the tungsten wire which will lead ultimately to its rupture, leaving a sharp tip in the zone where the fracture occurs.
