Kinetic parameters from chronopotentio-metric waves

  • T. P. Radhakrishnan
  • A. K. Sundaram


A simplified expression is given for the potential-time relation of a cathodic chronopotentiometric wave which involves mixed control by diffusion and charge-transfer. The treatment of quasi-reversible chronopotentiometric waves has been considered in detail. The chronopotentiometric behaviour of a number of partially irreversible and totally irreversible systems has been studied. The kinetic parameters have been evaluated and compared.
