Abstract : Experiments were performed to determine the feasibility of an electrochemical sensor for dissolved N2 based on N2-complexing activity of Ru ammines. The formation of Ru(NH3)5N2+2 by the reaction of Ru(NH3)5H20+2 and N2(aq) was observed by voltammetry as a progressive increase in an anodic-current peak at +0.8V SCE due to the oxidation of Ru(NH3)5N3+2.
