Use of the Saul'yev method for the digital simulation of chronoamperometry at the disk electrode, in the presence of homogeneous chemical reactions

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

The two-dimensional Saul'yev method of simulating processes at a disk electrode is tested in the
presence of homogeneous chemical reactions. The catalytic EC 0 reaction can produce a thin reaction layer,
which is a test of any simulation method. The second-order Birk/Perone (B/P) reaction is similarly a test
because of the nonlinear term appearing in the kinetic equations (although it does not give rise to a thin
reaction layer). The Saul'yev method handles these with no special problems and is competitive, in terms
of speed, with implicit methods at similar accuracy (and faster in the case of the nonlinear B/P case).
