The anodic oxidation of oxalic acid on gold

Abstract

"The anodic oxidation of oxalic acid on Au has been studied at 25ºC in aqueous media. The reaction rate was measured as a function of potential, oxalic acid concentration, pH, and temperature in H₂SO₄-K₂SO₄ solutions. A change in the Tafel slope in going from the lower to the higher Tafel region is explained by an alteration of the reaction mechanism due to electrical interactions between adsorbed species and the anode. Further details of an oxidation sequence involving resonant forms of oxalic acid are proposed"--Abstract, page 1.
