Title

Electrode Surface Modification via Polymer Adsorption

Abstract

We are interested in synthesizing electrode surfaces with useful chemical properties. The approach is to chemically bind organic or organometallic compounds to the surfaces of conductors and use these “chemically modified electrodes” to achieve greater specificity in electrode reactions. Recent studies have shown that modifiers, e.g., amines, can be chemically bound to carbon electrodes via the surface oxides. Metal oxides, e.g., tin oxide, have been modified by silyation. In each case rather stable binding of both electroactive and electroinactive modifiers have been achieved and new chemical properties have been imparted to the electrode. Related studies have shown that electroactive, organic compounds can be strongly adsorbed on platinum and carbon electrodes.
