New complex dimensionless variable in cyclic staircase voltammetry on the rotating disk electrode

Original scientific paper

Keywords: digital simulation, sigmoidal dependence, reversible oxidation
Graphical Abstract


Cyclic staircase voltammograms of a simple, reversible oxidation on the rotating disk electrode is analysed by the digital simulation. It is demonstrated that the peak currents and potentials depend on the single dimensionless variable that considers nonlinear relationship between peak currents and the potential increment. The reverse, cathodic branch of voltammograms depends on this variable differently than the anodic one.
