Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The electropolymerization of substituted manganese and iron metalloporphyrins with two pyrrolegroups bonded in lateral chains is investigated. It is shown that under potentiodynamic conditionsthe film formation can be successfully achieved. A methodology for the polymerization o f the ironcontaining monomer on microelectrodes is also presented.The behaviour of the polymer modified electrodes is studied for the O2 reduction, as well as for theoxygen and hydrogen evolution reactions, revealing good electrocatalytic activity.
