Cordas, C. M., I. Moura, and JJG Moura. "Direct electrochemical study of the multiple redox centers of hydrogenase from Desulfovibrio gigas." Bioelectrochemistry. 74.1 (2008): 83-89. AbstractWebsite

Direct electrochemical response was first time observed for the redox centers of Desulfovibrio gigas [NiFe]-Hase, in non-turnover conditions, by cyclic voltammetry, in solution at glassy carbon electrode. The activation of the enzyme was achieved by reduction with H(2) and by electrochemical control and electrocatalytic activity was observed. The inactivation of the [NiFe]-Hase was also attained through potential control. All electrochemical data was obtained in the absence of enzyme inhibitors. The results are discussed in the context of the proposed mechanism currently accepted for activation/inactivation of [NiFe]-Hases. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Cordas, C. M., A. S. Viana, S. Leupold, F. P. Montforts, and L. M. Abrantes. "Self-assembled monolayer of an iron(III) porphyrin disulphide derivative on gold." Electrochemistry Communications. 5.1 (2003): 36-41. AbstractWebsite

A novel iron(III) porphyrin disulphide derivative have been successfully immobilised on gold surfaces by self-assembly. The redox response of the modified electrodes was compared with the obtained for a similar iron porphyrin in solution, confirming the immobilisation of the metalloporphyrin. The gravimetric data obtained by electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM) during adsorption allowed an estimation of the electrode coverage, providing further evidence for the formation of the porphyrin SAM. The modified electrodes were also measured by conventional and imaging ellipsometry. The electrocatalytic activity of the two modified electrodes was tested for the reduction of the molecular oxygen.

Biofilms formed from a pure strain of Desulfovibrio desulfuricans 27774 on stainless steel and graphite polarised surfaces were studied. The polarisation conditions applied were -0.4V vs. SCE for different times. A cathodic current related with the biofilms growth was observed with a maximum intensity of -270 mA m(-2) that remained stable for several days using graphite electrodes. These sulphate reducing bacteria biofilms present electrocatalytic activity towards hydrogen and oxygen reduction reactions. Electrode polarisation has a selective effect on the catalytic activity. The biofilms were also observed by scanning electronic microscopy revealing the formation of homogeneous films on the surfaces. (c) 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The incorporation of a Keggin-type heteropolyanion, the phosphotungstate ([PW12O40](3-)), into polypyrrole has been achieved during the electrochemical preparation of the polymer films in aqueous solution. The redox behaviour of these modified electrodes is described by using cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM). The data allowed to estimate the doping level that indicates the extent of the heteropolyanion insertion. It is found that the polymer films, in aqueous solution, exhibit sensibility to cations, namely to Na+. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
