The electrocatalytic ability of the iron-substituted crown-type polyoxometalate (POM)Li4K16[P8W48O184Fe16(OH)28(H2O)4]·66H2O·2KCl (P8W48Fe16) towards the reduction of both nitriteand hydrogen peroxide reduction has been studied in both the solution and immobilized states for thePOM. P8W48Fe16was surface immobilised onto carbon electrode surfaces through employment of thelayer-by-layer technique (LBL) using pentaerythritol-based Ru(II)-metallodendrimer [RuD](PF6)8as thecationic layer within the resulting films. The constructed multilayer films have been extensively studiedby various electrochemical techniques and surface based techniques. Cyclic voltammetry and impedancespectroscopy have been utilized to monitor the construction of the LBL film after the deposition of eachmonolayer. The electrochemical behaviour of both a cationic and anionicredox probes at the LBL films has been undertaken to give indications as to the film’s porosity. The ele-mental composition and the surface morphology of the LBL films was conifmrde through the employmentof AFM, XPS and SEM. ACCEPTED peer-reviewed
