Scanning probe electrochemistry for catalysis researchLatest updated: June 2, 2023
Local information about electrocatalytic systems can be difficult to obtain through standard bulk electrochemistry techniques. When local information is important, for example when local heterogeneity of a catalyst affects its activity, the family of techniques known as scanning probe electrochemistry can be used. These techniques, which include Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (SECM), Scanning Droplet Cell (SDC), and Scanning Kelvin Probe (SKP), have found use in catalysis research due to their ability to measure the catalytic activity of a sample in situ with spatial resolution.
