Electrochemstry and Direct Conductivity Determination of Thin Films of Prussian Blue
Seong Bae Moon*, Young Inn Kim
Since much studies have been performed concerning the electrochemical behaviors and the practical applications of PB based devices, little has yet reported to investigate the best condition for the preparation for PB thin films. As considered some factors(peak shape, peak current, and peak separation) from the i-V curves, the optimal condition in the film growth were investigated under various immersion solutions. An electron-transfer processes of Fe2+/Fe3+ and Fe(CN)63-/4- redox couples were considered by measuring the observed currents as a function of the rotation velocity. The standard heterogeneous electron-transfer rates for these films and bare Au disc electrode in 10-3 M Fe2+/Fe3+ solution, applied at +0.65 V vs. SCE, were 6.14 × 10-3 and 7.78 × 10-3 cm/s, respectively, obtained using a rotating disc electrode. In case of the addition of potassium ion, the rate constants for these Fe2+/Fe3+ system on thin films of PB and bare electrode were given a little high values. The electron transfer rate for 10-3 M Fe(CN)63-/4- were 4.55 × 10-3 and 6.84 × 10-3 cm/s, respectively. The conductivity as directly determined during obtained the voltammogram, was 2.2 × 10-7 (Ω·cm)-1. This value is similar magnitude to that calculated from bulk sample.
