A joint experimental and computational search for authentic nano-electrocatalytic effects: electrooxidation of nitrite and L-ascorbate on gold nanoparticle-modified glassy carbon electrodes.
The investigation of electrocatalytic nanoeffects is tackled via joint electrochemical measurements and computational simulations. The cyclic voltammetry of electrodes modified with metal nanoparticles is modeled considering the kinetics of the electrochemical process on the bulk materials of the different regions of the electrode, that is, the substrate (glassy carbon) and the nanoparticles (gold). Comparison of experimental and theoretical results enables the detection of changes in the ele...Expand abstract
