Simulation of differential pulse voltammogram of 2-[35-bis(11-dimethylethyl)-4-oxo-25-cyclohexadien-1-ylidene]acetonitrile was attempted using diagnostic criteria for dimerization following its electrochemical reduction at platinum cathode in acetonitrile.
Wang's team was surprised to find that the nanoparticles could also catalyse the electrochemical reduction of small dye molecules, such as thionine, even in the absence of peroxide.
Then, the electrochemical reduction of gold nanowires was analyzed by using the response of cylindrical ultramicro electrode arrays.
These findings could pave the way for the development of new industrial enzymes where hyper-thermal resistance would play a crucial role, in applications ranging from biosensor development to electrochemical reduction of CO2 to liquid fuels.
Electrochemical reduction has since been known as simple and cheep and ecofriendly process for the preparation of organic compounds.
The ERC process, "the Electrochemical Reduction of Carbon Dioxide", combines captured carbon dioxide with water to produce high value materials, such as formic acid and formate salts, which are conventionally obtained from the thermochemical processing of Fossil Fuels.
