Abstract

The covalent attachment of a sol-gel thin film onto a glassy carbon electrode has been accomplished through the electrochemical reduction of 4-hydroxyphenyldiazonium. The latter forms a very thin layer on the glassy carbon with hydroxyl groups, through which the sol-gel is attached. We find that this "molecular glue" improves the adhesion of thin layers of sol-gel to a carbonaceous surface.
