Abstract

An electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM) was employed to monitor directly the growth of nickel(II) hexacyanoferrate(III) (NiHCNFe) films on gold substrates during electrodeposition as well as a result of sol-gel aggregation in colloidal nickel ferricyanide solutions used for modification. Frequency changes due to mass changes of the gold/crystal working electrode were correlated with cyclic voltammetric (CV) data. Evidence is also provided for the sorption of counter-cations (Li+, Na+ and K+), and associated water molecules, during redox reactions of the film. There is a strict relationship between the amount of alkali metal ions incorporated into the film during reduction, or excluded from the film during oxidation, and the frequency changes during EQCM measurements. The amount of solvent (H2O) transferred and sorbed in the NiHCNFe film reflects the degree of hydration of the investigated counter-ions. Anions also seem to participate in NiHCNFe electrochemistry, but their role is much less pronounced.
