Barrierless Discharge in Cathodic Hydrogen Evolution
In the previous chapter, we have shown that barrierless discharge may in principle exist at cathodes with a high hydrogen over-potential. In order to verify this statement, we conducted an experimental study of hydrogen overpotential at a mercury cathode in acidified iodide and bromide solutions, and in concentrated hydrochloric acid at low current densities[99,100]1.
