Applications Of Chemically Modified Electrodes

Dec 09, 2016

In their first stages, CMEs were merely applied in technologies they were initially made for (tuning surfaces for electrochemical investigations). After that, CMEs provided powerful routes to tune the performance of electrodes. The modification of electrodes facilitated the following processes in electroanalytical chemistry:

●Providing selectivity of electrodes

●Resisting fouling

●Concentrating species

●Improving electrocatalytic properties

●Limiting access of interferences in complex samples

It also provided a route for other purposes, such as:

●Researching energy conversion

●Researching the phenomena that influence electrochemical processes

●Storing and protecting corrosion

●Developing molecular electronics

●Developing electrochromic devices
