Description

Boron doped diamond is a new conductive material whereby industrial diamond is doped with boron, typically around 0.1%.

Potential benefits from applying boron-doped diamond in electrochemistry are:

  • A very wide accessible potential window and essentially no anodic electrode corrosion
  • High mechanical strength and wear resistance
  • High thermal conductivity
  • A low capacitive background
  • Average electrical resistivity of 0.75 x 10-3 ohm.meter

BDD substrates are available as:

  • 3mm diameter electrodes in an inert Teflon body
  • Individual pieces (both sides polished) – 10 x 10, 5 x 5 or 3 x 3 mm squares of ~0.5 mm thickness
Applications
  • Electrochemical Research
