    The potentiostatic electrodeposition of gold nanowire/nanotube in HAuCl4 solutions based on the model of recessed cylindrical ultramicroelectrode array

    , Article Journal of the Electrochemical Society ; Volume 160, Issue 6 , 2013 , Pages D279-D288 ; 00134651 (ISSN) Bagheri Hariri, M ; Dolati, A ; Siavash Moakhar, R ; Sharif University of Technology
    The mechanism of gold nanowire (AuNW) and nanotube (AuNT) electrodeposition in a cyanide-free solution is investigated for the first time based on the analytical model of Szabo et al. (A. Szabo et al., J. Electroanal. Chem. 217 (1987) 417) for recessed cylindrical ultramicroelectrode (UME). Track-etched Polycarbonate Template (PCT) is served as cylindrical UME ensemble/arrays. Firstly, Au is nucleated through a charge transfer step and when the Nernst thickness exceeds the pore length, the radial diffusion is established around pore mouths. By overlapping of these domains, the planar diffusion toward the whole PCT surface is obtained. An analytic expression for global diffusion coefficient... 

    Kinetic study and growth behavior of template-based electrodeposited platinum nanotubes controlled by overpotential

    , Article Materials Chemistry and Physics ; Volume 187 , 2017 , Pages 141-148 ; 02540584 (ISSN) Yousefi, E ; Dolati, A ; Imanieh, I ; Yashiro, H ; Kure-Chu, S. Z ; Sharif University of Technology

    Platinum nanotubes (PtNTs) are fabricated by potentiostatic electrodeposition at various overpotentials (−200 up to −400 mV versus SCE) in polycarbonate templates (PCTs) with pore diameter of 200 nm in a solution containing 5 mM H2PtCl6 and 0.1 M H2SO4. The synthesized PtNTs are characterized by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The electrochemical growth mechanism within nanoscopic pores and the relationship between morphological variations and kinetic parameters are investigated for the first time. It is shown that more porous structure of nanotubes forms at high overpotentials possibly due to preferably nucleation. The... 

    How does cobalt phosphate modify the structure of TiO2 nanotube array photoanodes for solar water splitting?

    TiO2 nanotube arrays (TNA) have been modified by cobalt phosphate (CoPi) through potentiostatic electrodeposition method. Different samples have been prepared by changing the loaded CoPi through the deposition time from 10 to 960 min. Formed catalytic materials have been characterized by different methods. Although charge transfer resistance of the CoPi/TNA photoanodes have been decreased from 5.5 to 4.0 kΩ by increasing the deposition time from 5 to 60 min, the maximum photoresponse was obtained for 10 min CoPi deposition leading to 24% more photocurrent compare to bare TNA which proposed optimum value for cobalt phosphate decoration. Based on field emission scanning electron microscopy... 

    Electrodeposition of Pt-Ru nanoparticles on multi-walled carbon nanotubes: Application in sensitive voltammetric determination of methyldopa

    , Article Electrochimica Acta ; Volume 58, Issue 1 , 2011 , Pages 125-133 ; 00134686 (ISSN) Shahrokhian, S ; Rastgar, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    A modified glassy carbon electrode, prepared by potentiostatic electrodeposition of platinum-ruthenium nanoparticles (Pt-RuNPs) onto a multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) layer, offers dramatic improvements in the stability and sensitivity of voltammetric responses toward methyldopa (m-dopa) compared to glassy carbon electrodes individually coated with MWCNT or Pt-RuNPs. The surface morphology and nature of the hybrid film (Pt-RuNPs/MWCNT) deposited on glassy carbon electrodes was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) techniques. A remarkable enhancement in the microscopic area of the electrode together...
