Abstract

Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (SECM) feedback mode and substrate generation-tip collection (SG-TC) mode coupled with chronoamperometric approach were used to investigate H-2 oxidation and hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) at a polyaniline (PAni) coated highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) electrode. Using the former mode, the heterogeneous electron transfer (ET) kinetics for H-2 oxidation was studied, while the latter mode allowed mapping of the distribution of local [H-2] at the nanoparticulate/aqueous interface, followed by monitoring the transients at the tip. These preliminary studies demonstrate that SECM is useful in evaluating the activity of nanophase electrocatalysts. Particularly, if one employs nanometer-sized tips or hydrodynamic microjet electrodes where the mass transfer rate is significantly high, it should be possible to investigate the ET kinetics more accurately.
