Abstract

Prussian blue-modified nanoporous gold film (PB-NPGF) electrode was fabricated in this study. The fabrication was realized through electrodeposition of Prussian blue nanoparticles on the skeleton of a nanoporous gold film electrode without destroying the porous structure of NPGF electrode. The resulting PB-NPGF composite electrode showed very high electrocatalytic activity, repeatability, and stability to the reduction of H2O2. For instance, its activity was about twenty times that of the PB-modified polished gold electrode. More importantly, the sensitivity of the PB-NPGF composite electrode reaches as high as 10.6 μA μM−1 cm−2. This PB-NPGF composite electrode is very promising in the fields of catalysis, analysis, and so on.
