Ferrocene and bis(biphenyl)chromium have been proposed as reference redox systems for non-aqueous electrochemistry. These materials have been tested for use in tetrahydrofuran solutions by cyclic voltammetry and polarography which confirmed the expected difference between their reaction potentials. Both materials are suitable for practical referencing, covering complementary potential ranges, but bis(biphenyl)chromium would normally be preferred.
