Abstract

"The object of this investigation was to establish a mechanism for the anodic oxidation of acetylene on gold electrodes in aqueous solutions. It is known that anodic oxidation of organic compounds on gold electrodes produces a large number of organic intermediates and end products. Therefore, it appeared worthwhile to establish a mechanism that could provide a better understanding of the fuel cell electrode kinetics and possibly lead to new methods of organic syntheses"--Introduction, page 2.
