Reduction of Organic Molecules in Region of Low Electrode Surface Coverages

  • A. B. Érshler

Abstract

We will consider some relationships which prove useful for investigating the kinetics of electrode processes involving organic molecules. Work on such reactions has been based to a. considerable degree on theoretical ideas formulated as a result of the investigation of the electrochemical characteristics of the simplest inorganic substances. There is, however, no doubt that organic compounds possess a number of special features which are important from the point of view of the electrochemist, namely:
  1. a

    considerable surface activity;

     
  2. b

    large size of the molecule, frequently exceeding the thickness of the dense part of the double layer;

     
  3. c

    possibility of the reaction nearly always proceeding by several parallel routes.
