Exploded view of the VCD-OTTLE cell: 1. metal cover plates (with filling ports); 2. rubber gasket; 3. CaF2 window; 4. custom polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) spacer (1 mm thick) with a circular aperture (4 mm diameter); 5. custom polyethylene-electrode spacer (see enhanced view in Fig. 2 ); 6. protective frame; 7. electrode plug.
Enhanced view of the PTFE spacer and the custom polyethylene-electrode spacer. WE: working electrode (shaped Pt minigrid), CE: counter electrode (flat Pt minigrid), RE: pseudoreference electrode (Ag wire).
CV of (S)-methyl 2-(1,3-dioxo-1H-benzo[de]isoquinolin-2(3H)-yl)propanoate in CD3CN (0.1 M Bu4NPF6) recorded at the scan rate of 5 mVs−1 with a PA4 potentiostat (EKOM, Polná, Czech Republic).
Pictures of the VCD-OTTLE cell containing the neutral (left) and radical anion (right) forms of (S)-methyl 2-(1,3-dioxo-1H-benzo[de]isoquinolin-2(3H)-yl)propanoate in CD3CN (0.1 M Bu4NPF6). Inset: closeup of the cylindrical probing volume before and after the complete electrolysis.
Adapted PMA50 sample compartment where the VCD-OTTLE cell is fixed in a sample holder arm between the two ZnSe lenses (f = 50 and 38 mm; PEM = Photoelastic modulator).
