Desorption of 3-Phenylpropionaldehyde preceding Polarographic Reduction

Abstract

In the interpretation of polarographic measurements, it is usually assumed that organic compounds are only reduced when they are adsorbed onto the surface of the mercury electrode1,2. Unfortunately, the term “adsorption” is used for a broad range of interactions between the solid and liquid phase.
