Electrode Processes with Antecedent Protonation Reaction
In electrochemical processes at the mercury electrode involving organic compounds, hydrogen ion addition or release usually takes place (an example of the very few electrode processes in which hydrogen ions do not take part is the reduction of aliphatic derivatives of vicinal dihalogen compounds: after the transfer of two electrons, two halogen ions are released and a multiple bond is formed between the carbon atoms [468–472]). On electrodes having a small hydrogen overvoltage the hydrogen atoms adsorbed on the electrode can take part in the electrode process (see, for example, ).
