    The corrosion inhibition of glycine-based dithiocarbamates with benzyl (BDTC) and propyl (PDTC) groups were investigated for cold rolled carbon steel (CRS) in 0.5 M HCl, indicating that the compounds as mixed type inhibitors significantly reduced the corrosion rate of the CRS due to the formation of a stable protective film on the metal surface. As confirmed by ATR-FTIR, SEM, AFM, XPS and theoretical studies, chemically adsorbed BDTC molecule is a better corrosion inhibitor with higher corrosion efficiency of about 98% at room temperature and a better thermal stability attributed to the Fe-S and Fe-N bindings, and in addition, to the presence of the benzene ring in the molecular structure. ©...

    RGO-α-Fe2O3/β-FeOOH ternary heterostructure composite has been developed as an active photocatalyst for photoelectrochemical water splitting. RGO-α-Fe2O3/β-FeOOH has been successfully synthesized through one-pot hydrothermal-ionic liquid assisted route using tetrabutyl ammonium L-methioninate [TBA][L-Met]and graphene oxide (GO). The electrochemical studies were carried out to demonstrate the oxygen evolution reaction (OER)and photocatalytic activities. The overpotential reduction by rGO-α-Fe2O3/β-FeOOH sample was higher than the nanobean α-Fe2O3/β-FeOOH and pristine α-Fe2O3 samples. The photocurrent density enhanced for rGO-α-Fe2O3/β–FeOOH urchin-like structure and obtained as 0.62 mA·cm−2....

    Electrochemical oxidation of saccharose on copper (hydr)oxide-modified electrode in alkaline media

    , Article Cuihua Xuebao/Chinese Journal of Catalysis ; Volume 31, Issue 11 , 2010 , Pages 1351-1357 ; 02539837 (ISSN) Jafarian, M ; Rashvand Avei, M ; Danaee, I ; Gobal, F ; Mahjani, M. G ; Sharif University of Technology
    A stable copper (hydr)oxide-modified electrode was prepared in 0.5 mol/L NaOH solution by cyclic voltammetry in the range of -250 to 1000 mV. It can be used for electrochemical studies in the range of -250 to 1000 mV without interfering peaks because there is no oxidation of copper. During an anodic potential sweep, the electro-oxidation of saccharose on Cu occurred by the formation of CuIII and this reaction also occurred in the early stages of the reversed cycle until it is stopped by the negative potentials. A mechanism based on the electro-chemical generation of CuIII active sites and their subsequent consumption by saccharose was proposed, and the rate law and kinetic parameters were...

    Thin carbon nanoparticle/Nafion film (CNP/N), as a novel electrode material, is formed on the surface of the glassy carbon electrode in a simple solvent evaporation process. The electrochemical behavior of Azathioprine (Aza) at the CNP/N-modified electrode is investigated in detail by the means of cyclic voltammetry. During the electrochemical reduction of Aza, an irreversible cathodic peak is appeared. Cyclic voltammetric studies indicated that the reduction process has an irreversible and adsorption-like behavior. The observed reduction peak is attributed to a four-electron process referring to the reduction of nitro group to the corresponding hydroxylamine. The prepared electrode showed...
