A versatile method for preparing templated WO3 thin films on transparent, conductive indium tin oxide (ITO) is demonstrated. In addition, the patterned thin films serve as quantitative experimental platforms for the study of interfacial ion transfer reactions. The differential electroinsertion/electrochromic activity can be correlated with structural characteristics of patterned WO3 thin films. The influence of structural features such as film morphology, crystallinity and film thickness on the kinetic and optical electroinsertion behavior of redox-active metal oxides, specifically for MoO3, using integrated `microvisualization' approach is presented.
