Cathodic electrochemiluminescence of acetonitrile, acetonitrile-1,10-phenanthroline and acetonitrile-ternary Eu(III) complexes at a gold electrode.

Cathodic electrochemiluminescence (ECL) behaviours of the acetonitrile, acetonitrile-1,10-phenanthroline (phen) and acetonitrile-ternary Eu(III) complex systems at a gold electrode were studied. One very weak cathodic ECL-2 at -3.5 V was observed in 0.1 mol/L tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBABF(4)) acetonitrile solution. When 10 mmol/L… CONTINUE READING
