Scientific methods can deliver a lot of information about your molecule, solution, or reaction, however, a single method will only provide a limited amount of information based on a single interaction, for example, light absorption, oxidation at an electrode, change of mobility, or movement of mass in an electric field.
For this reason, scientists try to create hyphenated techniques that allow observing the same system at the same time with multiple techniques. A popular hyphenated technique is spectroelectrochemistry, where electrochemical reactions or products are characterized by electrochemical methods, e.g., cyclic voltammetry (CV), and spectroscopy, e.g. UV-VIS. The information both techniques deliver is complementary as well. For example, an unstable product of electrochemical oxidation can be detected by spectroscopy before it decays.
This kit allows you to get started with spectroelectrochemistry in a convenient way. The spectroelectrochemistry application note will show you exactly how to connect the spectrometer to the potentiostat and operate the software to get your first results.
