Abstract / Full Text

The kinetics of electroreduction of peroxodisulfate anions on a mechanically renewed silver electrode is studied by voltammetric and impedance methods. Impedance diagrams obtained in the region of negatively charged metal surface are successfully modeled by the equivalent circuit formed by the solution resistance and also the reaction resistance connected in parallel with the constant-phase element substituted for the double layer capacitance. The analysis of experimental data carried out in terms of this circuit and their comparison with the literature data makes it possible to assume that the reduction kinetics of S2O 2−8 anions on this electrode can be adequately described in the framework of the phenomenological theory of slow discharge. The reasons for deviation of the literature data on the kinetics of this reaction on polycrystalline Ag electrode from the relationships following from the slow discharge theory are put forward and substantiated.
