Abstract:

Adsorption of oxygen on oxide-free platinum electrode was studied in pure 1 N H2SO4 solutions. Coverage of electrodes with oxygen was evaluated for various partial pressures of oxygen and temperatures. Heat of adsorption was obtained at different coverages. Dependence of rest potentials on coverage and partial pressure and on the temperature was determined. Preliminary work on the study of oxygen electrode reactions is described.
