Abstract

An iron electrode was modified by electrolytic reduction in deaerated acetonitrile solution of p-toluenediazonium tetrafluoroborate CH3C6H4N2BF4 (TDFB) or p-hydroxymethylbenzenediazonium tetrafluoroborate HOCH2C6H4N2BF4 (HOTDFB) below 10 °C to form a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of toluene CH3C6H4- or hydroxymethylbenzene HOCH2C6H4- (HOMB) moiety, probably adsorbed on the electrode by the formation of a covalent bond between carbon and iron atoms, as shown in references. The protective ability of the layer was examined by polarization measurement of the electrode in an aerated 0.5 M NaCl solution. The protective efficiencies of these two SAMs were not high, around 30%, a little higher than that of the toluenethiol CH3C6H4SH SAM which was anchored on iron via a coordinate bond between sulfur and iron atoms. The iron surfaces modified with TDFB and HOTDFB were characterized by contact angle measurement, FTIR reflection spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The persistence in protection of iron against corrosion by coverage with the HOMB SAM was confirmed by polarization measurements after immersion in 0.5 M NaCl for a long period of the time.
