Abstract:

This project has had as its main theme study, on a broad front of research, the modes of energy transfer which can accompany an electrochemically induced charge transfer process. A variety of high energy, reactive radicals have been studied and a framework of decay pathways and strategy for experimental investigations has been proposed. Significant aspects of electrochemical techniques, theory, and instrumentation developed during our studies of energy transfer modes have been 1 development of cryoelectrochemistry, 2 continued improvement of spectroelectrochemical methods, 3 introduction of stopped-flow kinetic methods as applied to electrochemically important chemical reactions, and 4 treatment of the cases of reactant and product adsorption in studies of electrochemically induced decay reactions. This project has also discovered an instance of surface solubility-controlled two-dimensional crystal formation in adsorption of a metal complex on a mercury electrode from aqueous solution. Author
