Abstract:

The objective has been to elucidate the structure of functional groups at the prismatic surfaces of graphite and related forms of carbon. The objective to make use of this functionality in order to manipulate the chemistry at the surface of carbon electrodes. Central to this project has been the proposition that prismatic surfaces of graphite, when freed of the usual surface oxides, should be composed of functionality resembling certain dehydroaromatic molecules. It would then follow that the reactivity of these surfaces should be analogous to the reactivity of the dehydroaromatics. Author
