Electrochemical studies are carried out in three main areas. 1 Phthalocyanine electrochemistry emphasis is placed on the chemistry of phthalocyanine modified electrodes for the study of electrocatalytic processes ultimately leading to chemical sensors. These studies include polymeric phthalocyanine conductive species. We also seek a comprehensive understanding of phthalocyanine electrochemistry to benefit all phthalocyanine redox applications. This work is extended to include Langmuir Blodgett LB surface monolayer phthalocyanine films with spectroelectrochemical studies being undertaken in situ on the trough surface. 2 Redox active ligands and electronic structure A broad range of chemical techniques uvvisFTIR resonance RamanPES X-rayElectrochemistrysolvatochromism ab initio calcs. are brought into play to understand the electronic structure, spectroscopy and electrochemistry of ruthenium mainly complexes of quinonoid ligands including derivatives such as quinonediimines where oxidation states are non-integral.
