Study of chlorine evolution on the Pt electrode in nitromethane solution
MetadataShow full item record
Electrochemical chlorination of non-saturated organic compounds in the aqueous and non-aqueous solvents depends on the mechanism of halogen formation. The mechanism of chloride ion discharge has been investigated in nitromethane on the rotating Pt disc electrode using Ag/AgClO₄ system in the galvanostatic measurement as the reference electrode. For the quasi-equilibrium process the constant k₂ and the constant of electron K₂ transmission have been determined for the recombination process occuring at 0.1 V.
