Abstract

In this study, the electrochemical mechanism of catechol in presence and absence of nitrite ion, is investigated in phosphate buffer medium (pH=7) using platinum electrode through cyclic voltammetry method in various scan rates. Electrochemical oxidation of catechol showed how quinone has changed to o-benzoquinone and also how o-benzoquinone has reacted with nitrite ion and potential scan rate has effected on.
