  Standard Electrode Potentials
This potential is a measure of the energy per unit charge which is available from the oxidation/reduction reactions to drive the reaction.
The electrode potential depends upon the concentrations of the substances, the temperature, and the pressure in the case of a gas electrode.
The standard electrode potentials are customarily determined at solute concentrations of 1 Molar, gas pressures of 1 atmosphere, and a standard temperature which is usually 25°C. The standard cell potential is denoted by a degree sign as a superscript.

 Silver Colloids: Definition of Terms
We cannot measure the "absolute" potential of an electrode; therefore, the electrode potential must always be referred to an "arbitrary zero point," defined by the potential of the reference electrode.
In equilibrium, the potential of the electrodes is the equilibrium potential and the cell voltage is the electromotive
It is important to note that the magnitude of the zeta potential is affected by both the nature of the surface of the particle, and the composition of the dispersant.

 BASi LC News
The role of the reference electrode in any electrochemical cell is to provide a stable half-cell potential; that is, it serves as the reference point along the potential axis which represents the oxidizing or reducing power of the working electrode.
These electrode potentials are determined by variables such as the half-cell reaction, the concentrations or the activities of the components of the half-cell, temperature, etc. X is a molecule (caffeic acid) which is oxidized at approximately +500 mV relative to the Ag/AgCl electrode.
Since the reference electrode potential is set as the zero point on the potential axis, it should not be surprising that oxidations may take place at negative potentials, and reductions at positive potentials.

The half-cell potential of this electrode serves as the reference point along the potential axis by which we judge the oxidizing or reducing power of the working electrode in the vicinity of the interfacial region between the working electrode and the electrolytic solution.
For example, the detector potential at one electrode may be set sufficiently positive to oxidize all compounds of interest and the second electrode may be set at a substantially lower oxidizing potential to only react with those compounds that are electrochemically active at these lower potentials.
In this mode, the working electrodes are poised in a potential region where the response of the analyte of interest is dramatically different; that is, where the slope of the current-potential curve is large.

Simple principle of polarography is the study of solutions or of electrode processes by means of electrolysis with two electrodes, one polarizable and one unpolarizable, the former formed by mercury regularly dropping from a capillary tube.
The dropping mercury electrode was polarized by alternating current and the corresponding rapid changes of electrode potential were followed on the screen of an oscilloscope.
For analytical purposes the potential dependence of the first derivative of electrode potential by time was used – it formed a closed, oval-shaped curve, with cathodic and anodic branches opposite each other; on such a curve, the electrolytic processes appeared as indentations.

Metals that have a potential more negative than hydrogen in a galvanic cell are said to have a negative electrode potential, and metals having a potential more positive to hydrogen have a positive electrode potential.

As a blanket explanation for the corrosion of different metals in a shipwreck in salt water, the large galvanic cell metaphor and the electromotive position of the metals have been overused and are not completely understood.

 Engineering > Electrochemistry > Preview > Potential Sign
Looking at the Cu electrode, if the external circuit were closed and current were passed, the result would be that Cu ions migrated toward the electrode where they would be reduced to Cu metal as electrons flowed through the circuit from the zinc to the copper electrode.
So if we simply imagine the copper electrode as having some adsorbed cupric ions on the surface, this is consistent with the spontaneous tendency of the cupric ions to move toward the copper electrode and the result is a positively charged electrode.
The opposite process would be happening at the zinc electrode where the spontaneous tendency is for zinc ions to migrate away from the surface of the electrode, leaving the excess electrons on the zinc metal.
