Scholarcy highlights

  • The reduction of nitrite at platinum electrode in 0.1 M HClO4 leads to a number of products
  • At −0.22 V, nitrite is reduced in net 4 electron convective-diffusion limited process. The products of this reduction are about 60.7% NH2OH, 18.8% N2O and 21.6% NH3
  • In the potential range 0.4 to 0.3 V, N2O is produced at a high current efficiency
  • The products of this reduction are about 60.7% NH2OH, 18.8% N2O and 21.6% NH3
