Abstract: The kinetics of the oxidation-reduction of hydrous oxide films formed electrochemically at an Ni+ Co-based amorphous alloy in alkaline solutions display numerous similarities with many polymercoated electrodes. In cyclic voltammetric experiments, the anodic response shows a strong dependence on the magnitude and the time spent at negative potentials, particularly in the case of relatively thick films, while the cathodic peak remains essentially unaffected by these variables. Potential step experiments show unu…
