Example text

One square contained a cylindrical well, machined through the square. A well was formed by covering the horizontal bottom of the hole with the substrate and clamping the second square below the substrate. The 30 m M K F e 0 in 10 M N a O H electrodeposition electrolyte was added to the well, covering the substrate, a working electrode with an exposed geometric area of 4 cm of either Pt or T i . A nickel counterelectrode was positioned just above the working electrode, and a Ag/AgCl reference electrode was immersed in the electrolyte.

However, the separator choice has a substantial effect on the synthesis yield. As expected, both a nonselective separator and no separator lead to lower yield, as a portion of the synthesized Fe(VI) can be lost via reduction at the counter electrode. The cation selective separator impedes anionic Fe(VI) diffusion to the counter electrode, preventing this loss, and as seen in the figure, yield is highest with Nafion membrane separation. ; ACS Symposium Series; American Chemical Society: Washington, DC, 2008.
