Cyclic voltammetry CV is a type of potentiodynamic electrochemical measurement. In a cyclic voltammetry experiment, the working electrode potential is ramped linearly versus time. Unlike in linear sweep voltammetry , after the set potential is reached in a CV experiment, the working electrode's potential is ramped in the opposite direction to return to the initial potential. These cycles of ramps in potential may be repeated as many times as needed. The current at the working electrode is plotted versus the applied voltage that is, the working electrode's potential to give the cyclic voltammogram trace.
Cyclic Voltammetry (CV)
Cyclic Voltammetry CV is an electrochemical technique which measures the current that develops in an electrochemical cell under conditions where voltage is in excess of that predicted by the Nernst equation. CV is performed by cycling the potential of a working electrode, and measuring the resulting current. The potential of the working electrode is measured against a reference electrode which maintains a constant potential, and the resulting applied potential produces an excitation signal such as that of figure 1. The potential extrema d is call the switching potential, and is the point where the voltage is sufficient enough to have caused an oxidation or reduction of an analyte. The reverse scan occurs from d to g , and is where the potential scans positively.

Monitoring reactive intermediates can provide vital information in the study of synthetic reaction mechanisms, enabling the design of new catalysts and methods. Many synthetic transformations are centred on the alteration of oxidation states, but these redox processes frequently pass through intermediates with short life-times, making their study challenging.
Like other voltammetric methods methods, cyclic voltammetry uses a three electrode system consisting of a working electrode, reference electrode, and counter.
