Functionalizing Arrays of Transferred Monolayer Graphene on Insulating Surfaces by Bipolar Electrochemistry.
Bipolar electrochemistry is used as a wireless functionalization method to graft 4-bromobenzenediazonium on large monolayer graphene sheets supported on SiO2 to show that transferred graphene can be electrochemically functionalized without the need of a metal support or the deposition of physical contacts.
Electrochemical properties of gold and glassy carbon electrodes electrografted with an anthraquinone diazonium compound using the rotating disc electrode method
In this paper, gold and glassy carbon (GC) electrodes were electrochemically grafted with anthraquinone (AQ) groups derived from Fast Red AL salt via electrochemical reduction of AQ diazonium
One-Step Dipping Method for Covalently Grafting Polymer Films onto a Si Surface from Aqueous Media.
A facile and one-pot dipping method was proposed in this article for the first time to prepare vinylic polymer films on a silicon (Si) surface and revealed that both polymers of poorly water soluble methyl methacrylate (MMA) and water-soluble acrylic acid (AA) monomers were covalently grafted onto the Si surface via this simple process.
Electrophilic radical coupling at the edge of graphene.
For the first time, the chemical state of a single line of carbon atoms is influenced and monitored using an electrochemical cell, therefore bypassing the usual requirements of atomic resolution characterization techniques, which often demand very clean graphene samples and vacuum processing.
Grafting and properties of a porous poly(methyl methacrylate) film on a silicon surface by a one-step dipping method
In this study, we prepared a porous poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) film on an Si surface with a novel dipping method. We conducted the process by directly dipping the Si substrate into acidic
Oxygen Reduction on Anthraquinone Diazonium Compound Derivatised Multi‐walled Carbon Nanotube and Graphene Based Electrodes
In this work, graphene and multi-walled carbon nanotubes were derivatised with anthraquinone (AQ) groups using spontaneous or electrochemical grafting of Fast Red AL salt. Glassy carbon (GC)
Determination of trace levels of Cd(II) in tap water samples by anodic stripping voltammetry with an electrografted boron-doped diamond electrode
High accuracy and reproducibility of the results as well as excellent stability of the electrode material proves superb capabilities of this Cd2+ detection system.


Characterization of the deposition of organic molecules at the surface of gold by the electrochemical reduction of aryldiazonium cations.
The deposition of 4-X phenyl groups on polycrystalline gold electrode was achieved by the electrochemical reduction of the corresponding 4-substituted phenyldiazonium tetrafluoroborate salts in anhydrous acetonitrile media and showed that the formation of multilayers is possible and that a significant fraction of the deposited material remained at the electrode surface, even following ultrasonic treatment.
High- versus low-quality graphene: a mechanistic investigation of electrografted diazonium-based films for growth of polymer brushes.
It is shown that a tertiary alkyl bromide can be introduced at a given surface density to serve as radical initiator for surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization (SI-ATRP).
Electrochemical Behaviour of HOPG and CVD‐Grown Graphene Electrodes Modified with Thick Anthraquinone Films by Diazonium Reduction
Highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) and graphene grown on Ni (Ni-Gra) or Cu (Cu-Gra) by chemical vapour deposition were modified with thick anthraquinone (AQ) films (7−60 nm) by redox grafting
Using a Mediating Effect in the Electroreduction of Aryldiazonium Salts To Prepare Conducting Organic Films of High Thickness
Usually, electrografting of aryldiazonium salts results in the formation of covalently attached films <10 nm thick. In this work, we report on an electrografting procedure by which thick conducting
Electrochemical and atomic force microscopy study of carbon surface modification via diazonium reduction in aqueous and acetonitrile solutions.
Lower limiting film thicknesses and surface coverages for films prepared in aqueous conditions is attributed to growth of inherently more blocking films and is supported by examination of the response of the Fe(CN)6(3-/4-) couple at NP-modified surfaces.
Elucidation of the mechanism of redox grafting of diazotated anthraquinone.
Redox grafting of aryldiazonium salts containing redox units may be used to form exceptionally thick covalently attached conducting films, even in the micrometers range, in a controlled manner on
Electrochemistry at CVD Grown Multilayer Graphene Transferred onto Flexible Substrates
The application of graphene and graphene-related materials for the fabrication of improved electrochemical devices is a very active research field. Because of the need of bulk quantities of graphene

Raman spectroscopic determination of the structure and orientation of organic monolayers chemisorbed on carbon electrode surfaces.
Observation of depolarization ratios for 4-nitroazobenzene and DNPH on graphite edge plane indicate that NAB is able to rotate about the NAB/carbon C-C bond, while chemisorbed DNPH is not, and the partial multiple bond character of the DNPH linkage to graphite is consistent with the observation that theDNPH π system remains parallel to the graphitic planes.
Spatially resolved spontaneous reactivity of diazonium salt on edge and basal plane of graphene without surfactant and its doping effect.
The successful spectroscopic elucidation of the different bonding characters of 4-BBDT depending on the site of graphene is beneficial for the fundamental studies about the charge transfer phenomena of graphene as well as for the potential applications, such as electronic devices, hybridized composite structures, etc.
