The aim of this work is to highlight the potential of using a modified gold electrode with controlled quantity of silver nanoparticles as a working electrode to detect low concentrations of nitrate in chloride solutions. Optimal charge for silver deposition has been determined to obtain the highest signal for the nitrate reduction as the electrocatalytic properties of the bimetallic electrode were directly influenced by its composition. According to the Volcano plot obtained the charge chosen… CONTINUE READING
