KI Electrode Testing

We continued with making an I- ISE to determine concentration of iodide in solution.


  1. Ag/AgCl Electrode:
    1. The plastic covering was removed, and stored in the 3 M NaCl solution
  2. Double-Junction:
    1. Diluted saturated KNO3 was added to the double junction cell
  3. Silver Wire:
    1. A piece was cut and placed in KI/KNO3 solution and electrolyzed
  4. KI Standard Curve:
    1. The Ag/AgCl electrode was placed in the double-junction electrode. The Ag/AgCl electrode was attached to the multimeter
    2. The silver wire was attached directly to the alligator clip
    3. KI solutions were tested for potential
