Surface patterning of polyacrylamide gel using scanning electrochemical cell microscopy (SECCM)

Author affiliations

Abstract

Scanning electrochemical cell microscopy is introduced as a new tool for the synthesis and deposition of polymers on SAM-functionalised Au surfaces. The deposition of poly(N-hydroxyethyl acrylamide) is shown to be enhanced through the electrochemical generation of activating Cu(I)Cl/Me6TREN catalyst. Initiation of the polymerisation reaction is most likely due to in situ generation of reactive oxygen species following oxygen reduction.
