I think some of the information on this page is wrong (but I'm not an expert!). The spelling isn't great either

It seems to be in order... (BW)

Missing information: Saturated calomel electrode (SCE) is +244 mV versus the standard hydrogen electrode (SHE) at 25°C REF: D.T. Sawyer and J.L. Roberts. In: Experimental Electrochemistry for Chemists Wiley-Interscience, New York (1974), p. 42. DCAM77 (talk) 18:47, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Pt?[edit]

The half-cell notation ends with Pt. What does platinum have to do with this? 207.70.169.36 (talk) 15:00, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

It's an inert electrode[1] - it sources or sinks electrons but does not react. Also see Standard hydrogen electrode#Why platinum?. --Kkmurray (talk) 02:38, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
