Abstract

Reduced graphene oxide (RGO) is used as a carbocatalyst for the electrochemical polymerization and in situ polymerization of 1-naphthylamine (1-NPA). Compared with graphene oxide (GO), RGO shows a much higher heterogeneous catalytic activity, not only on a solid electrode surface, but also in the liquid phase. The catalytic procedure is monitored by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and UV/Vis absorption spectroscopy.
