The testing of nanoelectrode tips for scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) is a slow and cumbersome task that often results in untimely electrode breakage due to crashing against a substrate. Here, we evaluated approach curves of nano- and microelectrodes to soft surfaces using SECM for a rapid and more convenient characterization and positioning(More)
We introduce electrochemical imaging and nano-resolved measurements of catalytic intermediates on operating SrTiO3 photoelectrodes. Spatially resolved redox titrations of photogenerated reactive oxygen species (ROS) were used to profile changes in ROS coverage and reactivity at pristine and ion-milled defective areas on n-doped (100) SrTiO3. Adsorbed ROS(More)
Nanoparticle metal oxide photocatalysts are attractive because of their increased reactivity and ease of processing into versatile electrode formats; however, their preparation is cumbersome. We report on the rapid bulk synthesis of photocatalytic nanoparticles with homogeneous shape and size via the cathodic corrosion method, a simple electrochemical(More)
Redox active colloids (RACs) are dispersible, cross-linked polymeric materials that incorporate a high concentration of redox-active motifs, making them attractive for next-generation size-exclusion redox flow batteries. In order to tap into their full potential for energy storage, it is essential to understand their internal charge mobility, capacity, and(More)
A major goal of energy research is to use visible light to cleave water directly, without an applied voltage, into hydrogen and oxygen. Although SrTiO3 requires ultraviolet light, after four decades, it is still the "gold standard" for the photo-catalytic splitting of water. It is chemically robust and can carry out both hydrogen and oxygen evolution(More)
