Basic kinetic equations of chronopotentiometric potential-time curves, in which the equations for reversible, quasi-reversible and irreversible electron transfer process appeared in special cases, were given and a chronopotentiometric method for determining kinetic parameters was proposed therefrom. The method was demonstrated for Fe(3+)/Fe(2+) redox reaction in acidic
aqueous media. The limitations of the method and the double-layer charging effects on the potential-time curve were discussed. The extension of the method to more general electrode processes was also considered.
