Abstract : ARO supported research of electrochemical studies in four related areas is summarized. The research involved electron transfer reactions to reactants bound electrostatically to soluble polyelectrolytes; application of a scanning electrochemical microscope to electrode surfaces coated with polyelectrolytes; kinetic measurements on thermodynamically disfavored electron-transfer reactions at polyelectrolyte-coated electrodes and the synthesis and electrochemical testing of polyelectrolytes containing electroactive labels permanently attached to the polyelectrolyte chains. The nine publications that have thus far resulted from the research are listed.
