Overvoltage effects at platinum electrodes may often be reduced by “activating” the surfaces by alternate oxidising and reducing treatments. The “activity” so produced soon deteriorates, and the phenomena are now ascribed to a thin unstable layer of disoriented platinum atoms which are formed on the surface and then rapidly reorient themselves.
