New Findings on Nanocomposites from China University Summarized (THE ADSORPTION OF Bi-III/Pt NANOCOMPOSITES AT PLATINUM ELECTRODE WITH HIGHLY ENHANCED ELECTROCATALYSIS TOWARD GLUCOSE)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Investigators publish new report on Nanocomposites. According to news reporting originating in Beijing, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "In this paper, we first fabricated a nanoPt modified platinum electrode. Then through a simple method, the electrode surface was introduced with a submonolayer of bismuth that acted as an effective promoter."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from China University, "Cyclic voltammetry and other characterizations were employed. The obtained Bi-III/nanoPt/Pt electrode exhibited two greatly increased oxidation peaks at negative and positive potential areas, respectively. The signals were far larger than that of platinum electrode because of the large true surface area of nanoparticles and the catalysis of bismuth adsorbed on platinum. In the presence of bismuth, the platinum active sites could combine with more OH- from bismuth hydroxyl to form a new active site for the oxidation of glucose."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The prepared BiIII/nanoPt/Pt electrode given high sensitivity and excellent linearship to glucose detection and showed the potential application in the areas of electrocatalysis or electroanalysis."
