Abstract : The rates of propane adsorption on a platinum anode in 0.1 and 1 normal acid solutions at 65C were investigated. The initial adsorption rates of propane in these acids were found in decreasing order to be: CF3CO2H > HClO4 > H2SO4. Acid anion effect was prevalent at potentials greater than 0.4 volts versus R.H.E. The lowest potential for maximum anodic oxidation of propane in all acid solutions was approximately 1 volt versus R.H.E. This propane oxidation potential appears dependent on the incipient formation of platinum oxides. (Author)
