Abstract

This communication reports that the electron-transfer rate and surface roughness of Au electrodes can be decreased simply by ultrasonic treatment. It seems that the hydroxyl radical generated during ultrasonic treatment plays an important role, as in the case of treatment with Fenton's reagent.
