The Autolab Microcell HC system is the ideal solution for fast and reliable temperature-controlled experiments. Consisting of a temperature controller and a cell stage with Peltier element, the Autolab Microcell HC is designed to accomodate a large choice of specially designed electrochemical cells.
The TSC1600 is a general purpose cell with a volume of 1.6 ml. This cell can be used to perform conductivity measurements on ionic liquids, determine the stability window of these electrolytes or determine the HOMO-LUMO gap of OLED dyes in organic solvents.
The TSC70 is a general purpose cell with a volume of 70 µl. This cell can be used to perform conductivity measurements on ionic liquids, determine the stability window of these electrolytes or determine the HOMO-LUMO gap of OLED dyes in organic solvents.
The TSC Battery has been designed for battery applications and is available in two versions: a standard version suitable for plane substrates, like the active materials, separators or solid ion conducting materials and an expanded version that allows the use of elemental lithium as electrode material. These cells can be fitted with elemental lithium as a pseudo-reference electrode or with a micro-reference elec-trode.
The TSC Surface is designed for electrochemical measurements on flat samples and can be used to study the electrochemical interface between a well defined working electrode and solution and the kinetics of electron transfer reactions. This cell, like all other cells is suitable for measurements with ionic liquids, but it can also be used with aqueous and organic solvents and for corrosion measurements.
The Closed TSC SW cell has been designed for conductivity measurements of moisture, air and light sensitive polyelectrolytes, polymer salt solutions and gels. It can also be used for conductivity measurements of ion conducting glasses.
The Cooling box provides the means to perform measurements at very low temperatures, or measurements in a condensing atmosphere. The Autolab Microcell HC fits inside the cooling box. The cooling box can be set to 0°C thus providing the means to reach temperatures down to -50 °C.
