Abstract : In studies of the kinetics and mechanism of the reduction of anions at an electrode, it is generally considered necessary to determine the charge, 'z', on the species being reduced. A simple differential method for determining 'z' from kinetic data at a single base electrolyte concentration is described; the results of its application to data for the reduction of peroxydisulphate and periodate anions are presented.
