Description This master's thesis investigates gold anodization in the presence of chlorides as a technique to enhance the surface area of gold electrodes for non-enzymatic glucose sensors. The study will involve depositing thin Au films on glass, examining the effects of anodization parameters on surface area, crystal plane proportions, and glucose oxidation peaks. The research aims to optimize the anodization process and provide insights into the glucose oxidation mechanism on gold, with a focus on controlling crystallographic plane exposure and resistance to Cl ions.
