Nanoparticle Mediated Clock Reaction: a Redox Phenomenon
A reversible redox phenomenon, involving metal, metalloid and metal oxide as catalysts, is an emerging and important field. Over the past few decades, incredible efforts have been put into the fabrication of various reversible redox reactions. In this section, we are going to explain the clock reactions of methylene blue, the reduction of iodate to iodine, and the dissolution of coinage metals. The study of the clock reaction of methylene blue is interesting not only from a chemical point of view but also because of its importance in various biological applications.
