Cathodic reduction of bisulfite and sulfur dioxide in aqueous solutions on copper electrodes: an electrochemical ESR study.

Abstract:

The electrochemical reduction of aqueous solutions of sulfite under acidic conditions on copper electrodes is reported, and a mechanism is proposed. Cyclic voltammetry at a copper disk suggests the operation of two reduction processes, the dominant process depending on solution pH. At very low pH (0-2), sulfur dioxide is reduced in a two-electron, two-proton reaction, but at higher pH (2-5), bisulfite is the electroactive species, being reduced by a single electron to ultimately yield the SO2...
