Abstract

Electrochemical oxidation of a glassy carbon (GC) electrode in a 1-alkanol leads to the covalent attachment of the alkanol molecules to the electrode surface. Measurements of contact angle, capacitance, electrochemical performance, and/or adsorption property of bovine serum albumin allowed surface characterization of the electrodes anodized in a wide variety of 1-alkanols. Anodization in 1,ω-diols turned out to have potentiality as a convenient starting point for chemical modifications of carbon surfaces.
