Preparation and characterization of surface modified electrodes from hydroxyanthraquinones

Bailey, S.I., Ritchie, I.M., Searcy, N. and Singh, P. (1988) Preparation and characterization of surface modified electrodes from hydroxyanthraquinones. Journal of Applied Electrochemistry, 18 (3). pp. 368-373.

The preparation of polyphenylene oxide polymer films has been extended to the anthraquinone series. Potentiostatic and cycled potential procedures have been utilized in the anodic polymerization of several hydroxy-substituted anthraquinones producing surface modified electrodes incorporating the quinone moiety. The electrochemical response of such electrodes was investigated in aqueous media and the stability of the films was evaluated under moderately harsh testing conditions, simulating the environment of a lead-acid battery electrolyte.
