Abstract:

The contents of the report cover several complementary aspects of work on oxidation mechanisms at the platinum anode with particular reference to oxidation of, or electrochemical adsorption of oxygen - containing species at, platinum and the behavious of hydrocarbons at the oxidised platinum anode surface. A number of complementary procedures were used in the studies including steady-state measurements, direct and differential galvanostatic studies and potentiodynamic experiments as well as some examination of carbon-14 labelled molecules at the platinized platinum electrode.
