A correlation between the morphology of the solid surface and electrochemical response was found in microscopic and electrochemical investigations. A shift of the oxidation potentials of metals to more negative values was observed on electrodes with microstructured surface with respect to similar processes on macrostructured electrodes. The formation of passivating films, causing reverse current and deteriorating the analytical signal, was not observed, and the performance characteristics of voltammetric procedures were improved. The experimental data indicated the increased electrochemical activity of modifying metal particles with a decrease in the particle size. As a result of the deliberate change of the surface composition and the formation of a micro- and nano-structured surface, a new generation of electrodes was developed with excellent electroanalytical characteristics.
