EIS Spectrum Analyser (analysis and simulation of impedance spectra)
EIS Spectrum Analyser is a standalone program for analysis and simulation of impedance spectra. The analyser routine is based on algorithms of the PDEIS spectrometer. In the original (potentiodynamic) version the equivalent circuit analysis is applied on a 3D spectrum and gives dependences of the ac response components on electrode potential. This standalone program has been adapted to solve a wide range of tasks in the common (stationary) impedance spectroscopy. In addition to data fitting to equivalent circuits with resistors, capacitors, inductors, constant phase, Warburg (3 types), userdefined and Gerischer elements, the EIS Spectrum Analyser provides various tests for data consistency and quality of fit. It has also a builtin impedance spectra simulation routine, tools for impedance data processing (subtraction of circuit elements and subcircuits, normalisation for electrode surface area) and plotting in various formats. The program is free for noncommercial use.

Software package: Chemical reaction network toolbox (CRNT), Version 1.02
The Chemical Reaction Network Toolbox, Version 2.2 is now available
at the site:
http://crnt.engineering.osu.edu/CRNTWin/
There is no charge for the program. (It was developed as a suite of tools
in connection with research sponsored in part by the United States National
Science Foundation and the Petroleum Research Fund.)
The Chemical Reaction Network Toolbox (CRNT) is a program for IBM
compatible personal computers. It does many, many things. People who use the
program tell me that it's VERY easy to use and that they like it a lot.
CRNT should be of interest to chemists, chemical engineers and mathemati
cians at all levels of expertise (ranging from undergraduates to those
engaged in very advanced research). I know that CRNT will provide chemical
engineering students with lots of help with their kinetics homework!
The program consists of two parts, ChemLab and Network Analyst, that
"talk to each other". ChemLab is the part of CRNT that will probably be of
interest to most users, so I'll describe that first.
ChemLab is essentially a simulation environment. In response to a
userspecified network of chemical reactions (and a userspecified
assignment of rate constants), ChemLab will generate the appropriate
(isothermal mass action) system of ordinary differential equations governing
the species concentrations. (These differential equations will generally be
nonlinear and can be very complex.) In response to userspecified initial
conditions, ChemLab will solve the differential equations and display the
results in a variety of numerical and graphical formats. In particular,
ChemLab will plot species concentrations vs. time and will draw two and
threedimensional composition trajectories. ChemLab will also draw several
trajectories simultaneously so that you can see two and threedimensional
phase portraits.
Network Analyst, on the other hand, is somewhat more advanced. It
implements certain results in chemical reaction network theory. Chemical
reaction network theory deals with the relationship between reaction net
work structure and qualitative properties of the corresponding differential
equations. For example, in response to a userspecified reaction network,
Network Analyst will try to determine if there can be rate constants such
that the resulting differential equations admit composition oscillations,
an unstable steady state, multiple steady states, a degenerate steady state
(i.e., one with a zero eigenvalue), and so on. When the Network Analyst
determines that the answer is NO, it will tell you so. On the other hand,
if Network Analyst determines, for example, that a reaction network has the
capacity for multiple steady states, it will exhibit a sample set of
rate constants along with a pair of steady states consistent with them.
(The rate constants and the steady states can be exported to ChemLab for
further study.) It should be mentioned in particular that Network Analyst
provides powerful tools for mechanism discrimination in heterogeneous
catalysis
CRNT comes with an onscreen tutorial and a help system that get
you up and running pretty quickly. (Or so I'm told.) The tutorial was
written primarily with chemical engineers and chemists in mind, but there's
an appendix for mathematicians who want to understand how the differential
equations come about. Again, ChemLab is probably the part of CRNT that will
be of interest to most users, so it's probably best to concentrate on that
first.
There are two files you'll want to retrieve via FTP: The first,
CRNTPACK.TXT, is a text file that explains how to use the main file,
CRNTPACK.EXE. (CRNTPACK.EXE is a compressed, selfextracting file that
"unpacks" all the files that CRNT need to run properly.) Before retrieving
CRNTPACK.TXT via FTP, the FTP mode should be ASCII (usually the default).
Just before retrieving CRNTPACK.EXE, you should change the FTP mode to
BINARY. This is done simply by entering BINARY at the FTP prompt.
Once the unpacking is finished, enter CRNT at the DOS prompt, and
you'll be up and running. On your first time out, you should select "Hello,
New User!" from the main menu. Have fun.

Waitfor v1.3: Cooperatively runs EG&G programs
For electochemists using EG&G INSTRUMENTS software for EIS (M398) and for
conventional electrochemical measurements (M273).
Waitfor v1.3 is a utility which enables automatic interchanging of runs of any
DOS programs in two different applicationwindows under Win3.1 or Win95.
Designed for use in autoexecute sequences of M398 and M273 EG&G Instruments
electrochemical software. This program enables automatic interchanging runs of
autoexecute sequences of M273 (EG&G Instruments program for conventional
electrochemical measurements) and M398 (EG&G Instruments program for impedance
measurements).
During operation, both programs are running in the background. One program
automatically detects the moment that the second program has finished and takes
over the control of the autoexecute sequence. For example, you can make a loop
for galvanostatical reduction for one hour, then potentiostatic EIS, then
reduction again automatically for fifteen cycles. Especially useful in battery
related research.
This package also includes a MCONV utility which converts multiple EG&G format
ASCII files produced by the run of autoexecute, to plain ASCII. Also changes
*.00N type file names to *0N.dat type, if requested.
The package includes detailed description of the utility.
Special requirements: M398 and M273 EG&G Instruments electrochemical software;
corresponding hardware for electrochemical/EIS measurements.

ELSIM: Program for the simulation of electrochemical transient methods
ELSIM version 3.0
by Leslaw K. Bieniasz (June 1996)
The third version of the program ELSIM, for the simulation of electrochemical
transient methods, is now freely available for the purposes of scientific
research. Anyone willing to obtain a copy of the program is kindly requested to
contact me at the addresses indicated below (email preferred).
ELSIM is a UserFriendly Problem Solving Environment for the
simulation of transient electrochemical techniques. The program
runs on IBM compatible personal computers under MS DOS
(including the DOS mode of the Windows 95 or IBM OS / 2 WARP
operating systems). The user simply types in an electrochemical
reaction mechanism and specifies parameter values. The built
in "reaction compiler" automatically generates the text of the
corresponding mathematical governing equations, and
comprehensively verifies the correctness of the reaction
mechanisms. If necessary or desired, the user may also directly
type in the text of the mathematical problem definition, using
a conventional mathematical notation. In both cases the text of
the equations serves as input data to the formula translator
that automatically generates a solution algorithm and sets up
the numerical problem.
The program solves:
(1) Integral equations for linear potential scan and cyclic
voltammetry, for electrochemical kinetic systems in one space
dimension (must be typed in directly). Choice of four solution
methods.
(2) Governing equations independent of the space coordinates
(sets of algebraic, ordinary differential or differential
algebraic equations) that arise for electrochemical kinetic
systems characterized by the presence of interfacial species
(localized at the electrodes) of variable concentrations, and
possibly bulk species (distributed in the electrolyte) of
constant concentrations. This permits i.a. the simulation of
adsorption phenomena coupled with electrochemical reactions at
the neglection of bulk transport, simulation of a class of
oscillatory electrochemical systems, or modelling of thinlayer
electrodes. Choice of two solution methods.
(3) Governing equations in one space dimension, that arise for
electrochemical kinetic systems characterized by the presence
of bulk species of variable concentrations and possibly
interfacial species of variable concentrations (sets of partial
differential equations for the concentrations of bulk species,
optionally coupled with the sets of algebraic, ordinary
differential or algebraicdifferential equations for the
concentrations of interfacial species). This permits i.a. the
simulation of homogeneous reactiondiffusion problems like many
frequently discussed CE, EC, ECE, etc. models, as well as
adsorption phenomena coupled with electrochemical and
homogeneous reactions, in the presence of bulk transport.
Choice of eight solution methods.
Virtually any kind of controlledpotential or controlled
current transients can be simulated, because the actual
transient waveforms and other peculiarities of the
electrochemical problems can be freely defined by the users, by
entering appropriate mathematical formulae.
A number of tools serving for the postprocessing of simulation
results and their comparisons with experimental data (e.g.
fitting of the simulated transient curves) is integrated with
ELSIM. The program involves a comprehensive contextsensitive
hypertext "help" facility, and is accompanied by a set of 68
example reaction mechanisms, a set of 70 demonstration examples
of mathematical problem definitions, and a manual (over 250
pages). Extensive error diagnostics are present throughout the
program.
Although in the case of complex kinetic models ELSIM 3.0
may suffer from various limitations inherent in the DOS system,
this program is the most comprehensive and the most
general of the currently available free and commercial programs
for the simulation of electrochemical transient methods, for
kinetic problems in one space dimension.
In contrast to other available simulation programs,
ELSIM has been widely described in
regular scientific papers, so that the program users have
access to many details regarding the algorithms implemented in
the program, properties of the simulation methods, various
physicochemical assumptions accepted, and other technical
aspects. The following list of publications may be helpful in

EChem++: a problem solving environment for electrochemistry
This project is conceived as an Open Source Software that realizes the idea of a Problem Solving Environment (PSE) in the field of computational electrochemistry.
Computer controlled experimental measurements, numerical simulation and analysis of electrochemical processes will be combined under a common user interface.
OOP is the paradigm, C++ the language and Linux the Operating System.
The program can be downloaded from http://www.echem.unituebingen.de/~bs/echem/software/EChem++/echem++.shtml.

Tto®: electrochemical data processing program
The Tto program for treatment of electrochemical data begins to develop as a program only for voltammograms representation, because in our Research Laboratory we have many measuring equipment and each one uses a different data file. So that, if you wanted to compare data from different experiments, it was necessary to dump the data to treatment programs (Excel®, Origin®, SigmaPlot®, ...) by importing them, cleaning all the corresponding header and other additional information available in the file and taking into account the possible difference in the units used for potentials and currents in each type of file.
To facilitate this work we create a program for graph representation (which was autoscale). It must automatically be in charge of the conversion of units, cleaning redundant or unnecessary data and delete headers or others that may be off interest. This seminal simple idea has been growing slowly towards a more powerful program that also allows processing of data contained in the experimental files
The program works with data from CAEM Instrumentation, Autolab, BAS, CH Instruments, Digisim, Varian, and TXT instrumentation.
