A wall-jet ring disc electrode was constructed by adapting a wall-jet flow through electrochemical cell. Commercially available spectral graphite and glassy carbon were used as working disc electrodes and the ring electrode was made of stainless steel. The efficiency and rate constants, measured in a planar parallel flow hydrodynamic regime, indicated the partial electroreduction of dissolved oxygen as a quasi-reversible two-electron process for both electrode materials tested.
