On the meaning of the diffusion layer thickness for slow electrode reactions.

Abstract:

A key concept underpinning electrochemical science is that of the diffusion layer - the zone of depletion around an electrode accompanying electrolysis. The size of this zone can be found either from the simulated or measured concentration profiles (yielding the 'true' diffusion layer thickness) or, in the case of the Nernst ('linear') diffusion layer by extrapolating the concentration gradient at the electrode surface to the distance at which the concentration takes its bulk value. The latte...
