Abstract:

The anodic oxidation of normal hexane and cyclohexane in phosphoric acids gives two sets of measured parameters in two defined potential regions. Both sets are consistent with the same rate-determining step if one postulates a change from Langmuir to Temkin adsorption kinetics going from the lower 0.3 - 0.5 V to the upper 0.57 - 0.8 V potential region. The electrochemical activities of the hydrocarbons vary as follows i sub C2H6 nearly equal to i sub C3H8 5 i sub n-hexane 10 i sub cyclohexane. Author
