Standard Practice for Designating Shapes and Sizes of Nongraphite Counter Electrodes (Withdrawn 2013)

Significance and Use

4.1 This practice is intended as a reference for spectrochemical methods that utilize nongraphite electrodes. One of the electrode shapes in this practice should be employed and referenced in a method. If this is not possible, the method should include the specifications for the electrode used.

4.2 This practice should be referenced in a method by including a statement such as the following in the section on Reagents and Materials:

  Counter Electrode—The electrode shall conform to Type (insert the Type designation from this practice) as shown in Practice E1059.


1.1 This practice describes a number of specific nongraphite counter electrode shapes and sizes that are useful in spectrochemical analysis.

1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
