Electrochemical Restructuring of Copper Surfaces Using Organic Additives and Its Effect on the Electrocatalytic Reduction of Nitrate Ions
Australian journal of chemistry (Print)
This work describes the fabrication of nanostructured copper electrodes using a simple potential cycling protocol that involves oxidation and reduction of the surface in an alkaline solution. It was found that the inclusion of additives such as benzyl alcohol and phenylacetic acid have a profound effect on the surface oxidation process and the subsequent reduction of these oxides. This results in not only a morphology change but also affects the electrocatalytic performance of the electrode fordoi:10.1071/ch15191 fatcat:qzoycsdpfffnjcspmkihpfdhme
