The first use of fluorescence confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) to image three-dimensional pH gradients at electrode surfaces is described, using the reduction of benzoquinone (BQ) to hydroquinone in aqueous solution as an example. The associated local pH changes accompanying the process have been imaged using a trace amount of fluorescein, which has a pH-dependent fluorescent signal. Images recorded in x-y-z space, allow pH profiles to be obtained as a function of applied electrode potential. Experimentally determined profiles measured when BQ is reduced at a diffusion-limited rate are shown to be in good agreement with predictions from numerical simulation. Future applications of CLSM for pH imaging at electrode surfaces and its use in scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) are highlighted briefly. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
