New paper from the bakergrp on a tool for high-throughput electrochemistry.
Electrochemical arrays promise utility for accelerated hypothesis testing and breakthrough discoveries. Herein, we report a new high-throughput electrochemistry platform, colloquially called “Legion,” for applications in electroanalysis and electrosynthesis. Legion consists of 96 electrochemical cells dimensioned to match common 96-well plates that are independently controlled with a field-programmable gate array. We demonstrate the utility of Legion by measuring model electrochemical probes, pH-dependent electron transfers, and electrocatalytic dehalogenation reactions. We consider advantages and disadvantages of this new instrumentation, with the hope of expanding the electrochemical toolbox.
