Experimental comparison of the Butler-Volmer and Marcus-Hush-Chidsey formalisms of electrode kinetics: The reduction of cyclooctatetraene at mercury hemispherical electrodes via cyclic and square wave voltammetries

Abstract:

Critical analysis of the Butler-Volmer and Marcus-Hush-Chidsey kinetic models is carried out through the study of the first one-electron reduction of cyclooctatetraene in DMSO at mercury hemispherical microelectrodes. This is an atypically slow process due to the conformational distortion taking place from the tub-shaped neutral species to the planar radical anion. Cyclic and square wave voltammetries are employed with the aim of examining the consistency of the results extracted from each mo...
