Title: On the influence of hydronium and hydroxide ion diffusion on the hydrogen and oxygen evolution reactions in aqueous media

Abstract: We present a study concerning the influence of the diffusion of H+ and OH ions on the hydrogen and oxygen evolution reactions (HER and OER) in aqueous electrolyte solutions. Using a rotating disk electrode (RDE), it is shown that at certain conditions the observed current, i.e., the reaction rate, does not depend on the kinetics but on diffusion properties; In fact we demonstrate how studying these reactions in 0.1 M non-buffered aqueous electrolytes with pH-values ranging between pH 1 to pH 13, the diffusion coefficients of H+ and OH ions can be determined. Within the experimental error limits, we found no pH dependency on the diffusion coefficients for any of the investigated ions.
