Electrochemically, photochemically and magnetically tuneable organic semi-conducting electrodes for probing biologically important redox chemistry and catalysis

Project: Research

Project Description

New electrochemically tuneable metal-organic semi-conducting electrode materials will provide almost unprecedented levels of versatility with respect to their electrochemical functionality, conductivity, morphology, magnetic and other properties. Metal components incorporated into the electrode structures will include Main Group, Transition Metal, Lanthanides, catalytically and photochemically active polyoxometallates and coordination complexes. Fundamental electrochemical studies on electron transfer reactions at these surfaces will emphasize biologically important metalloproteins and their coupled catalytic processes. Detailed characterization of new materials and sensor development will accompany the electrochemical advances.
