The voltammetry of metallic nanoparticle arrays

Abstract:

The experimental work discussed in this thesis examines the effect of voltammetry of nanoparticle arrays with a specific focus on the effect of nanoparticle size and surface coverage on the substrate electrode. These effects are investigated in relation to the reduction of hydrogen peroxide, 4-nitrophenol and the hydrogen evolution reaction. In each case, the experimental data obtained is subsequently fitted using numerical simulations to extract quantitative kinetic data.
