Abstract

Oxygen from air-saturated aqueous solutions was employed as redox mediator in SECM experiments. Accurate approach curves under negative-feedback conditions were obtained using platinum and gold microelectrodes. Imaging experiments were also carried out, using a 2.5 mum gold microelectrode and oxygen that acted as distance mediator. The topographic images of a glass surface and that of a marble surface prior and after localised acid attack were recorded. High concentrations of hydrogen ions were produced locally, at the microelectrode tip held 3 mum above the marble surface, by applying a large enough positive potential within the oxygen evolution region. Under these conditions, the dissolution of CaCO3 occurred. Pits were produced, and the crater volumes thus obtained were linearly dependent on the electrolysis time.
