Temperature dependent electrochemistry—a versatile tool for investigations of biology related topics

Author affiliations

Abstract

Temperature dependent electrochemistry can be efficiently used to determine very different properties of the investigated system, such as thermodynamic parameters of redox processes (especially the entropy), the degeneration temperature of a protein or kinetic parameters, for instance activation energy. It can even be used in biotechnology for improved catalysis and detection of substances. This perspective describes a selection of different experiments that used temperature dependent electrochemistry in order to determine these different values or achieve an enhancement of biotechnological applications, respectively, and hence gives an overview of its versatile use in studies aimed at biological issues.
