Abstract : Abnormal overvoltages were found in the course of this work for the reduction of iodate on mercury in alkaline solution in presence of Li(+). These results are described and interpreted. It is suggested that addition of Li(+) to IO3(-) affects in some way the hydration shell of that ion and renders reduction easier. The strong hydration of Li(+) ion and probably IO3(-) seems to support his view. Less strongly hydrated ions do not exhibit this abnormal behavior. (Author)
