Results and Discussion: Response of Different Carbon Platforms as Electrochemical Transducers

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


One of the most important aspects for evaluating the characteristics of an electrochemical transducer is based on the analysis of electron transfer kinetics. Generally, this phenomenon depends on the electrode materials and surface properties. Carbon-based materials such as glassy carbon, graphite, fullerene and doped-diamond, with different electronic and structural properties, have been shown to have different electrochemical properties. A relationship between structure, morphology and electrochemical reactivity has been established and therefore it can be predicted that different structural forms of the CNTs will exhibit different electrochemical behaviour compared with other forms of carbon-based materials.
