Anodic Charging of Electrodes at Low Temperatures Studied by Electron Spin Resonance,
DEFENCE RESEARCH ESTABLISHMENT OTTAWA (ONTARIO)
Pagination or Media Count:
A study of anodic oxidation processes at several electrodes at low temperatures in KOH solutions is presented. The techniques of electron spin resonance have been used to identify intermediates. From a detailed kinetic analysis of the information obtained, the role of the formation and decay of O3- and certain metallic oxide radicals in the anodic charging of metal hydroxide electrodes has been deduced. The formation of O3- andor O2-, or neither, during anodic oxygen evolution seems to be controlled by the tightness of binding of OH to the surface hydroxide which changes with the metal in the inferred order of increasing binding strength Cd, Pb, Ni, Pt.
