Resumo

Spatiotemporal pattern formation in reaction-transport systems takes place spontaneously when the system is kept far from thermodynamic equilibrium. Targets, reaction fronts, waves, spirals, spots and stripes are some typical examples of selforganized structuring. In electrochemical systems, monitoring spatiotemporal patterns of potential in the solid/liquid interface can be done by the use of equally distributed microprobes located close to the working electrode. However, the physical size of each probe can limit the spatial resolution and alter mass transport properties. In contrast, the direct measurement of discrete electrodes does not suffer from this limitation and allows the accurate manipulation of the spatial coupling through changes in resistors connected to the electric circuit. In this paper, the development of an electrochemical setup for multichannel data acquisition with spatiotemporal resolution is described, especially to monitor low levels of currents usually observed in the electro-oxidation of small organic molecules.
