    • Abstract

       

      Using cyclic voltammetric techniques the electrochemical behaviour of gallium in alkali media has been investigated. Three anodic peaks, one cathodic peak, and a secondary anodic peak—an observation hitherto unreported—are obtained. Detailed analyses of these various stages of oxidation and reduction based on their peak potential and peak current characteristics have revealed the nature of the underlying electrochemical reactions.
