The redox reaction of hydrogen peroxide (O2 + 2H+ + 2e ⇄ H2O2) at an Au(100) electrode/0.1 M HClO 4 interface and the kinetic H-D isotope effect for O2 reduction have been investigated. It was found that i) the kinetics for electrochemical oxidation of H2O2 to O2 are very fast, occurring at a potential very close to its equilibrium potential (EO2/H2O2eq); ii) the kinetics for O 2 reduction to H2O2 are much slower than those for H2O2 oxidation, with a H-D kinetic isotope effect of above two; and iii) the onset overpotential of H2O2 + 2H+ + 2e → 2H2O is ca. 1.4 V. Mechanistic insight and the origin for the high overpotential at the onset for O2 reduction at Au(100) are discussed.
