Lecture 5BiopotentialElectrodes(Ch. 5)
Electrode – Electrolyte Interface
Electrolyte (neutral charge)
C+, A- in solutionCCCA-A-
rent flowC+ : CationA- : Anione- : electron
 Fairly common electrode materials: Pt, Carbon, …, Au, Ag,… Electrode metal is use in conjunction with salt, e.g. Ag-AgCl, Pt-Pt black, or polymer coats (e.g. Nafion, to improve selectivity)
Electrode – Electrolyte Interface

General Ionic Equations
a) If electrode has same material as cation, then this material getsoxidized and enters the electrolyte as a cation and electrons remainat the electrode and flow in the external circuit. b) If anion can be oxidized at the electrode to form a neutral atom,one or two electrons are given to the electrode.a) b)
Current flow from electrode to electrolyte : Oxidation (Loss of e
)Current flow from electrolyte to electrode : Reduction (Gain of e
)The dominating reaction can be inferred from the following :

There is an important mistake in the slide: Polarizable and non-polarizable Electrodes. Platinum Electrodes are PERFECTLY POLARISABLE! The source I have is exactly the same than yours (it has at least the same pictures) Medical Instrumentation by John Webster.
