Acidic aqueous solutions of bromic acid salts (bromates) are promising electrolytes for redox flow batteries due to their record high power capacity and the rate of electrode reactions proceeding in the autocatalytic regime. The paper gives a comparison of the results of mathematical modeling and experimental measurements of steady-state currents of bromate anion electroreduction in sulfuric acid medium on microelectrodes of various radii. An algorithm of solving the inverse problem suitable for determination of the key transport and kinetic process parameters was proposed and tested.
