dc.description.abstract The kinetics of the electrochemical oxidation of graphite to volatile compounds by electrolysing molten bisulphates in the temperature range from 180 to 320°C has been studied by conventional steady-state and non-steady-state measurements. CO2, CO and traces of SO2 are formed during the electrochemical reaction. Assuming 4 Faraday/mol of CO2, the anodic efficiency is about 90%. The CO2/CO ratio is about 2 and is independent of the cd in the range considered. The electrochemical reaction is compared to the thermal oxidation of graphite. The reaction is interpreted through a scheme involving consecutive reactions, where the rate-determining step, under Temkin conditions, is a thermal process involving a desorption of intermediates following either a first-order or second-order process depending on the type of adsorption obeyed. The activation energy derived from the rate constant at the rest potential is about 42·5 Kcal/mol. en
