Abstract : OXYGEN CATHODIC REDUCTION ON Cu has been investigated in acid, neutral and alkaline solutions, together with the parallel process of H2O2 cathodic reduction. Two reaction mechanisms have been outlined: the former involving Cu compounds and the latter involving the depolarization of atomic hydrogen formed at the Cu surface owing to cathodic polarization. This process may be compared with the similar one observed when Au is concerned. (Author)
