Abstract : In an attempt to elucidate further the effects of interfacial structure on heterogeneous electron transfer processes, the electroreduction of peroxydisulphate anion has been studied at a dropping mercury electrode in formamide. The differences in double layer structure are pertinent to the proposed explanations of the cation effect in that they might result in differences in the effect which would help clarify its nature. In the present paper, the results of a study of the cation effect for peroxydisulphate reduction in formamide are reported and compared with those in water. (Author)
