Integrating CVs: How and Why

Posted by Susan Shultz on April 15, 2019

Cyclic voltammetry (CV) is a useful technique for extracting qualitative kinetic data from an electrochemical reaction. Various peaks appear in a CV dataset: each peak corresponds to a particular electrochemical process, and the height of the peak is related to the concentration of the analyte.
