    • Abstract


      Cyclic voltammetric responses of electrochemically treated polycrystalline gold surfaces have been examined using Cu-UPD probe reactions (UPD-underpotential deposition). The treatment procedure used appears to induce preferential crystal orientation of the Au surface with a very small roughness factor and affords a simple method to obtain well-defined surfaces for electrochemical studies.
