Magnetic field was employed as a useful tool to improve stability of electroactive films deposited on substrate surfaces. To this aim, electrochemical preparation/deposition of Prussian blue (PB) was carried out in the presence of an external magnetic field to form a thin film onto a Pt substrate electrode. The results were compared with a conventional PB modified electrode throughout the research. For the electrode prepared in the presence of the magnetic field, a stronger voltammetric behavior with higher peak current was observed. It was accompanied by higher chemical and electrochemical stabilities of the deposited electroactive film. Spectroscopic measurements were also performed to investigate the influence of the applied magnetic film on the properties of the electroactive film deposited. The results were indicative of the fact that deposition under magnetic filed is accompanied by stronger chemical bonds and different elemental composition of the electroactive material formed on the electrode surface. Based on the experimental results, it was concluded that both Lorentz and magnetic forces are responsible for the behavior observed.
