  • Chemists frequently use a shorthand notation to describe electrochemical cells. The cell in Figure 18-2a, for example, is described by
  • single vertical line indicates a phase boundary, or interface, at which a potential develops.
  • The double vertical line represents two phase boundaries, one at each end of the salt bridge. A liquid-junction potentialdevelopsat each of these interfaces.

  • an electrode must be easy to construct, reversible, and highly reproducible in its behavior. The standard hydrogen electrode (SHE)meets these specifications and has been used throughout the world for many years as a universal reference electrode. It is a typical gas electrode.
