Abstract : Optical transmission measurements have been made in situ on gamma-MnO2 during discharge in acid and alkaline solutions. The gamma-MnO2 was electrodeposited on a conducting tin oxide coated quartz flat. The opitcal data are compatible with disproportionation in acid media and the stepwise reduction in basic media.
