A new strategy for simulation of electrochemical mechanisms involving acute reaction fronts in solution under spherical or cylindrical diffusion

In this paper we present a combined simulation approach for solving complex electrochemical kinetic problems at (hemi)spherical and (hemi)cylindrical electrodes based on the simultaneous application of analytical conformal coordinate transformations to accurately treat the diffusional transport and adaptive grid compression to locally increase the accuracy of the approximation of acute reaction fronts. This strategy is shown to be very efficient and leads to extremely accurate results both for steady state and transient situations and is equally powerful for both pure diffusion and that complicated by severe kinetic distortions.
