Departamento de Química Física, Facultad de Química, 30071 Murcia, Spain


A theoretical study of the potential-time response to sinusoidal current applied to static and dynamic electrodes for regeneration processes is presented. Methods for determination of the regeneration fraction, rate constant of the chemical reaction and heterogeneous kinetic parameters are proposed.
