Redox reaction rates using potentiostatic coulometry Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A new method based on potentiostatic coulometry was used to study the kinetics of the aqueous redox reactions between the ions chlorate/lodlde, bromate/lodide, and bromate/brom-Ide. The halogen product was continuously and rapidly reduced back to halide at a large platinum gauze cathode, the current being a direct measure of reaction rate and the accumulated charge serving to measure the extent of reaction. The reactions were studied at several temperatures, and activation entropies and enthalpies were calculated. © 1987, American Chemical Society. All rights reserved.
