Abstract

A conducting polymer was used for the immobilization of various transition metal ion-substituted Dawson-type polyoxometalates (POMs) onto glassy carbon electrodes. Voltammetric responses of films of different thicknesses were stable within the pH domain 2-7 and reveal redox processes associated with the conducting polymer, the entrapped POMs and incorporated metal ions. The resulting POM doped 10 polypyrrole films were found to be extremely stable towards redox switching between the various redox states associated with the incorporated POM. An amperometric sensor for hydrogen peroxide detection based upon the POM doped polymer films was investigated. The detection limits were 0.3 and 0.6 uM, for the Cu 2+ - and Fe 3+ -substituted POM-doped polypyrrole films respectively, with a linear region from 0.1 up to 2mM H 2 O 2 . Surface characterization of the polymer films was carried out using atomic force 15 microscopy, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy.
