Theoretical and practical aspects concerning construction and use of a thin layer electrochemical cell are presented. Construction was realized by a simple technic and geometry was optimized in order to minimize the problems of electrical resistance. A well known redox system was studied ((Fe(III)(CN)6(3-)/Fe(II)(CN) 6(4-)) using two experimental methods, cyclic voltammetry and pulse chronopotentiometry. A numerical integration based-program was developed to calculate the voltammetric current in case of nernstian and non-nernstian behaviours and a diffusional model was used to treat the chronopotentiometric data. Thermodynamic (potential, concentration) and kinetic parameters (diffusion coefficient) were successfully determined for the redox system studied in this work
