We describe an alternative electrochemical technique to monitor covalent bond formation in real-time using nanoparticle-electrode collisions. The method is based on recognising the redox current when MP-11 functionalised chemical reduced graphene oxide (rGO) nanosheets collide with Lomant's reagent modified gold microelectrode. This facile and highly sensitive monitoring method can be useful for investigating the fundamental of single-molecule reactions.
