An equation on the current-polarization voltage
characteristics of single charge transfer redox reaction
on a rotating disk electrode (RDE) was given and a curvefitting method to determine kinetic parameters from an
observed polarization curve was proposed therefrom. The method was demonstrated for Fe(2+)/Fe(3+)redox reaction in acidic aqueous electrolyte on Pt-RDE and the limitation of the method was discussed. The extension of the method to multistep charge transfer reaction was also considered.
