Abstract : Adsorption process and cathodic reduction of oxygen on a nickel electrode is investigated. The reduction of oxygen to OH(-) can occur directly or through intermediate formation of hydrogen peroxide. The branching ratio of the oxidation reduction reaction is studied. The effect of electrolyte composition and processing of the electrode surface on the branching ratio is investigated. (Author)
