Abstract : The objective of the effort was to study the influence of the interfacial environment at electrode surfaces on the behavior of molecules present at the surface. The main approach was to use the self-assembly method to immobilize fluorescent probe molecules at the surface and then to spectrally interrogate these probe molecules to learn about their response to electrochemically induced changes in the interfacial environment. This effort resulted in the first direct experimental determination of electric field intensities at electrode surfaces.
