Electrochemistry and Spectroelectrochemistry with Electrospun Indium Tin Oxide Nanofibers

Abstract : In this work, Indium tin oxide (ITO) nanofiber materials have been prepared and subsequently used for electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical analysis. Nanofibers have been electrospun from a suspension of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) and indium and tin precursors with a ratio Sn/In = 0.16. Their diameter could be adjusted between 110 and 235 nm and the layer thickness was controlled between 12 and 120 mu m. A calcination at 500 degrees C in air followed by a thermal treatment at 1000 degrees C under nitrogen atmosphere allowed to obtain conductive ITO nanofibers. XRD characterizations confirmed the successful transition of the starting material into indium tin oxide, showed the influence of the thermal treatment on grain size and provided some insight on their orientation. The electrochemical properties of the nanofibers have been characterized and optimized using dimethanolferrocene as a model probe. This porous ITO electrode have been applied to the electroanalysis of ascorbic acid with a sensitivity of 1.04 mAmM(-1)cm(-2) and to spectroelectrochemistry using Prussian blue as model system.
