Abstract : The shift of potential at open circuit of a streaming mercury electrode (S.M.E.) was determined and anlyzed for control by diffusion or charge transfer and for mixed control by diffusion and charge transfer. The following systems were investigated: Hg(I) in 1 M perchloric acid, Cr(III)/Cr(II) in 1 M potassium chloride and V(III)/V(II) in 1 M perchloric acid. The charging current of the S.M.E. was also investigated and observations were made on the discharge of Hg(I) and Hg(II) with mixed control by diffusion and migration. (Author)
