A rigorous mathematical analysis is presented for an irreversible electrode process in the cyclic reciprocal derivative chronopotentiometry. Influences of basic electrochemical parameters, such as transfer coefficient α, rate constant ks, current density j, number of the electrons involved in the electrode reaction n and reactant concentration c0 on the properties of the dt/dE-E chronopotentiogram are described.

Keywords: Cyclic reciprocal derivative chronopotentiometry; Irreversible reactions; Electrode processes; Electrochemistry; Voltammetry.
