Cycloaddition reactions are powerful and widely used reactions for C–C bond formation. In addition to the cycloaddition reactions in the solution phase, this reaction can also occur between the C=C bonds of alkenes molecules and the dimers of the solid surface such as Si (100) and diamond (100) to form [2 + 2] cycloaddition products [1, 2, 3]. The surface of glassy carbon (GC) is the sp2-bonded carbon and thus the [2 + 2] cycloaddition reaction is expected to occur on its surface.
On the other hand, the assembly of ordered metal nanoparticles, especially gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), on electrodes surfaces has attracted increasing interest due to its great application potentials in electroanalysis and electrocatalysis [4, 5, 6, 7, 8]. Characteristics of AuNPs such as high surface-to-volume ratio, high surface energy, and ability as electron-conducting pathways between redox molecules and electrode surfaces, have been claimed as reasons for the high electrocatalytic activity...
