Electrochemist: electrochemical simulation and data analysis
New version: polar.zip
Software ELECTROCHEMIST.com (former Polar and Polarograph) is virtual
electrochemist who can analyze and simulate electrochemical experiments.
For detailed instructions, manual, and guide to elecrochemical
analysis, please visit Author's site:
analytically and digitally
voltammetry and chronoamperometry
on virtually any mechanism
in 4 models (finite and semi-infinite diffusions, convection and adsorption)
at over 10 electrode geometries (planar, spherical, semi-spherical,
cylindrical, semi-cylindrical, microdisc, thin film, and their rotating
electrodes) by virtually any waveform techniques (e.g. linear sweep, CV,
DC, normal pulse, differential pulse, square wave, additive square wave,
staircase voltammetries, user-defined or imported waveform
chronoamperometry and voltammetry).
It also simulates the effects to change over 30 parameters, e.g. charge
current, resistance, noise, preconcentration time and potential, convection,
pH, the reactant and product numbers, etc. This software provides five ways
to check accuracy of simulation. It calculates over 1000 types of theoretical
It plots and analyses any x,y data for detecting peak location, peak height,
peak width, semi-derivative, derivative, integral, semi-integral, convolution,
deconvolution, curve fitting, and separating overlapped peaks and background
It shows tip when the user put mouse cursor over a lable.
The progrom can separate overlapped voltammograms into individuals,
and extract real peak from voltammogram with noise and baseline.
It outputs the theoretical peak values, the peak current and potential, and
current-potential data, which can be imported into other program (e.g.
MS Excel). User can copy-and-paste the voltammogram into his document.
It has been successfully applied to fit experimental polarograms
(voltammograms) of In(III), Cd(II), Pb(II), Tl(I), Cr(III).
Zn(II), and binuclear copper complex in aqueous and non-aqueous media
at mercury, solid metal and non-metal electrodes (specifically the
dropping mercury, hanging mercury drop, gold, platinum and glassy
carbon electrodes) by various electrochemical techniques (differential
pulse, square wave, and pseudo-derivative normal pulse polarographies).
