Reversible electron transfer reaction of a freely diffusing species has been studied using the network approach. A network model for this process under cyclic voltammetric conditions has been proposed, and a numerical simulation has been made with the help of the electrical circuit simulation routine PSPICE. A great accuracy in simulated voltammograms has been reached with a personal computer at a moderate cost in computer time.
