Voltammetric characteristics of hydrous Fe(III) oxide embedded into Nafion and immobilised onto a screen-printed carbon electrode: binding of arsenate versus phosphate

Nafion offers microporous channels of typically 1–4-nm diameter for cation exchange. Recently, it has been shown that these cation exchanger properties can be inverted to allow anion binding by pre-filling the hydrophilic channel structure. Here, pre-filling is performed with hydrous iron oxide and sensitivity towards anionic phosphate and arsenate analytes is investigated. After...

Decolourisation of reactive black-5 at an RVC substrate decorated with PbO2/TiO2 nanosheets prepared by anodic electrodeposition

Reticulated vitreous carbon (RVC) substrates were coated with a composite of PbO2 and titanate nanosheets (TiNS) by anodic electrophoretic depostion. The structure and morphological characteristics of the coating were evaluated by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) and Raman spectroscopy. The TiNS/PbO2/RVC coating contained the anatase phase and showed a well...

Downstream analytics quantification of ion release during high-voltage anodisation of niobium

In operando quantification of field-assisted ion release during high-voltage anodisation (up to 100 V SHE) of Nb in 0.1 M sulphuric acid was performed. Electrochemical high-field oxide formation under both potential and current control was studied separately. The quantification of in situ ion release via ICP-MS revealed an increase of the oxide dissolution factor (from 337 to 422...

Composites of tin oxide and different carbonaceous materials as negative electrodes in lithium-ion batteries

Tin and tin oxide have been considered as suitable materials with a high theoretical capacity for lithium ion batteries. Their low cost, high safety, and other technical benefits placed them as promising replacements for graphite negative electrodes. The problem to overcome with tin oxide, as well as with other metallic materials, is high volume changes during alloying/dealloying...

Determination of accurate electrode contribution during voltammetry scan of electrochemical capacitors

This paper introduces the method which allows determining the accurate electrode contributions during cyclic voltammetry (CV) scan of electrochemical capacitor. As a result of theoretical considerations, a calculation method which reveals voltammetry response of both electrodes during CV of two-electrode cell with reference is developed. The technique is based on the preservation...

Does the low optical band gap of yellow Bi3YO6 guarantee the photocatalytical activity under visible light illumination?

Bi3YO6, which is known as an ionic conductor, was tested here as an electrode and photoanode in contact with aqueous electrolytes. Bi3YO6 was deposited onto the Pt substrate and the such prepared electrode was polarized in various aqueous electrolytes. The optical energy band gap of the material equal to 1.89 eV was determined using the Kubelka-Munk function resulting from the UV...

Influence of constant magnetic field on electrodeposition of metals, alloys, conductive polymers, and organic reactions

The paper presents and summarizes some research on constant magnetic field effects in chemistry. Metals and alloys electrodeposited under constant magnetic field have greater thickness and smoother surface with finest grains. Metallic materials deposited under the influence of uniform magnetic field may have stronger corrosion resistance, than those obtained without the presence...

Galvanic exchange platinization reveals laser-inscribed pattern in 3D-LAM-printed steel

Galvanic exchange involving dissolution of iron and the simultaneous growth of platinum onto 316 L stainless steel was investigated for specimens manufactured by 3D-printing, and the behavior was compared to conventional stainless steel. Novel phenomena associated with the 3D-printed steel, but not conventional steel, reacting in three distinct phases were observed: first, with...

La0.1Ca0.9MnO3/Co3O4 for oxygen reduction and evolution reactions (ORER) in alkaline electrolyte

Non-precious metal bifunctional catalysts are of great interest for metal–air batteries, electrolysis, and regenerative fuel cell systems due to their performance and cost benefits compared to the Pt group metals (PGM). In this work, metal oxides of La0.1Ca0.9MnO3 and nano Co3O47 catalyst as bifunctional catalysts were used in oxygen reduction and evolution reactions (ORER). The...

Electrochemical properties of positive electrode in lead-acid battery modified by ammonium-based ionic liquids

The influence of selected types of ammonium ionic liquid (AIL) additives on corrosion and functional parameters of lead-acid battery positive electrode was examined. AILs with a bisulfate anion used in the experiments were classified as protic, aprotic, monomeric, and polymeric, based on the structure of their cation. Working electrodes consisted of a lead-calcium-tin alloy...

Anodization behaviour and basic property mapping in the aluminium-erbium system

A co-evaporation technique was used for depositing an Al-Er thin film combinatorial library on borosilicate glass substrates with Er concentrations between 3 and 21 at.% and a total compositional resolution of 0.25 at.% mm−1. Scanning droplet cell microscopy was employed for compositional mapping of several fundamental properties of mixed oxides grown on Al-Er thin film alloys...

Hybrid system of nickel–cobalt hydroxide on carbonised natural cellulose materials for supercapacitors

Advanced carbon materials formed from abundant biomass are an exciting and promising class for energy devices due to the clear advantages of low cost, sustainability and good physical and electrochemical properties. However, these materials typically do not compete well with their metal functionalised counterparts. In this work, we demonstrate that xCo(OH)2–(1−x)Ni(OH)2 with...

Electrolyte-cathode interactions in 5-V lithium-ion cells

The electrolyte/electrode interactions on the anode side of a lithium-ion cell and the formation of the solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) have been investigated intensively in the past and are fairly well understood. Present knowledge about the reactions on the cathode side and the resulting cathode electrolyte interphase (CEI) is less detailed. In this study, the electrolyte...
