Conducting polymer based multifunctional composite electrodes


In this paper, we report a novel pattern of composite electrocatalysts. PPy/iron-oxalate films exhibit photo-electrochemical activity. The PPy/B12 composite electrode on stainless steal (SS) support shows high catalytic activity in the electrochemical reduction of methylviologen. Thin polymer layers filled with magnetite particles can be applicable in magneto-selective electrochemical reactions.
