Underpotential deposition of active metals : electrochemical and spectroscopic studies

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

This research is a collaboration between the Chemistry Group of the LISE and the Weizmann Institute of Science with Prof. I. Rubinstein and Dr. A. Vaskevich.
The major objective of this research is the construction and study of hybrid nanomaterials comprising ultrathin layers of active metals and organic layers. More specifically, this includes (i) Study of metal electrodeposition and underpotential deposition in non-aqueous solutions, to form metal and bi-metal layers. Emphasis will be put on active metals (Fe, Ni, Co,) which are of practical importance (e.g., for magnetic memories). (ii) Combining active metal monolayers/ultrathin films with organic SAMs, to form metal-organic hybrids and superlattices.
