Abstract

We show here that metallic impurities presented in graphenes prepared from graphite can be usefully employed for electroanalysis. We demonstrate that cumene hydroperoxide electrochemical reduction on graphene containing iron-based impurities provides significantly larger voltammetric currents than the same experiment using iron oxide nanoparticles. This opens doors for turning metallic impurities into potentially useful components of graphene based electrochemical systems.
