Abstract:

An attempt has been made to evaluate the standard potential of the AgOAg2OOHC- electrode by direct measurement against a hydrogen electrode. The value obtained is 0.599 or - 0.001 volt at 25 C. However, the value appears to vary with KOH concentration. Furthermore, dEdT values appear to change with KOH concentration and with temperature. It is concluded that the electrode potential for this electrode system has been measured. The results obtained seem to be associated with an Ag2O-solution interface rather than with an AgO-AgO couple. Author
