Abstract: Fast scan voltammetry is an efficient tool to distinguish oxidative/reductive adsorp-tion/desorption from that for bulk reaction. In this work, we provide a methodology that the isotherm of oxidative/reductive adsorption desorption processes at electrode surface canbe obtained using just one solution with relatively low reactant concentration, by taking the advantage of varying the potential scan rate (relative of the diffusion rate) to tune the adsorption rate and proper mathematic treatment. The methodology is demonstrated bytaking acetate adsorption at Pt(111) in acidic solution as an example. The possibility for ex-tension of this method toward mechanistic studies of complicated electrocatalytic reactions is also given.
