dissolved hydrogen peroxide sensor

The ES-H2O2-SW amperometric sensor has been developed for the in-situ determination of hydrogen peroxide containing aqueous solutions. Therefore the sensor is suitable for direct measurements in coloured and turbid solutions (wastewater), in industrial plants, but also in biological research.

Compared with all the other commercially available hydrogen peroxide sensors, this amperometric H2O2 micro-sensor works with such a low analyte consumption, that streaming of the sensor membrane or stirring of the analyte is not necessary. And, an additional stirrer is not necessary for stationary measurements.

The second advantage of the ES-H2O2-SW sensor is the very fast response time with t90% =1-2 seconds.

The third advantage of the new micro-sensor is based on the micro-sensor technology itself. High signal stability, high local signal resolution allows some new applications, as for instance the profiling in µm-steps.


H2O2 amperometric measurements explained

Because of the partial pressure of the gaseous H2O2 dissolved in the sample, the analyte is separated from the inner electrolyte by means of the membrane. The membrane is only pervious to gases, so that liquids, ions and solids are not able to reach the inner electrolyte or the electrodes of the sensor.

The sensor contains inside a special electrolyte and 3 electrodes. The electrode materials have been selected and prepared very carefully to realize ideal electrochemical conditions. The time for the polarization, realized by means of the sensor’s integrated electronic device, is approximately 5…15 minutes after the first switching on or long breaks.

If the H2O2 has passed now the membrane, it reacts chemically with the redox catalyst and forms a new compound. After this, this compound is transported by diffusion to the working electrode followed by the electrochemical reaction. This causes a current depending on the hydrogen peroxide partial pressure/hydrogen peroxide concentration of the sample.

The observed current within a range of 0...400 picoamperes is converted into a voltage of 0...5 Volt inside the integrated electronic device of the sensor. Besides, in opposite to other measuring principles, the current flow in the amperometric sensor leads to a rapid decrease of the analyte inside the sensor resulting in very fast response times even though there is a concentration jump from high to low concentrations.


the importance of combined temperature measurements

All commercially available electrochemical sensors have to be combined with a temperature measurement and the amperometric H2O2 sensor too. When ordering a multi-sensor measuring system for laboratory use or a complete submersible probe system, the temperature measurement and the temperature correction of the sensor signal is already included.

If measurements in a flow through system are required, special temperature sensors for the integration in flow through cells are offered. When measuring in opened vessels or beakers in the laboratory, the customers have to realize the temperature measurement themselves. If a calibrated sensor is ordered, the temperature correction is very easy by means of a factor or for more accurate measurements by means of a mathematical formula, delivered with the sensor.
