Electrochemistry on Boron-doped Diamond (BDD) Electrodes (#162)

Conductive boron-doped diamond (BDD) is an alternative to metal electrodes or traditional carbon electrodes that provides superior chemical and dimensional stability, low background currents, and a very wide potential window of water stability. Recently, electrochemical applications using BDD electrodes are attracting much attention in many fields, not only in electrochemistry but also in fields such as functional materials science, analytical chemistry, environmental science, biomedical or biological science and so on. In fact, waste water treatment systems, ozone generation systems, using BDD electrodes have already become commercially available. Electrochemical sensor using BDD electrodes are also very near to commercialize. More so, the number of publications involving BDD electrochemistry research is drastically increasing year by year. Here, in this symposium, the current development on BDD electrochemistry such as electrochemical sensor application, water treatment, ozone generation, electrochemical organic synthesis will be discussed. Furthermore, the fundamental studies on interfaces of BDD electrodes including theoretical analysis are also important topics.
