Abstract : The objective of this program was an improved understanding of the role of sorption processes at electrodes in the electrochemical oxidation of carbonaceous fuels with special emphasis on the development of novel experimental approaches to this end. Of the many techniques studied, the radiolabled sorption, differential capacitance, voltage step and potential sweep techniques were found to be the most useful for studies of selected light hydrocarbon, methanol and formic acid fuels.
