Abstract: Ionic liquid like 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluorobrate ([BMIM]BF4) has been used as solvent and electrolyte for the electropolymerization of aniline at glassy carbon electrode by cyclic voltammetry. Electrode modified with polyaniline (PAn) has favorable electrochemical activity in ionic liquid and acid solution(pH=0~4), and has significant electrocatalytic activity for redox reaction of catechol and hydroquione.

Key words: ionic liquid, cyclic voltammetry, electrocatalytic, catechol, hydroquione, polyaniline, ionic liquid, cyclic voltammetry, electrocatalytic, catechol, hydroquione
