Abstract

[NiII(teta)]2+ (teta=C-meso-(5,5,7,12,12,14-hexamethyl-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane) was electropolymerized on glassy carbon (GC) and Nafion® coated GC electrodes (GC/Nf). These poly(NiIIteta) modified electrodes showed 70 mV shift per pH unit and electrocatalysed the oxidation of H2O2. The thickness of the Nafion® film was found to influence the rate of the electrocatalytic reaction. A rate constant of 1.77 × 103 dm3 mol−1 s−1 was observed at 1.0 × 10−5 cm thick Nafion® film, whereas a rate constant of 0.08 × 103 dm3 mol−1 s−1 was observed at 3.6 × 10−5 cm thick film. At a plain GC electrode, a rate constant of 1.29 × 103 dm3 mol−1 s−1 was observed. The poly(NiIIteta) is stabilized in the Nafion® film when compared to the poly(NiIIteta) coated on plain electrode.
