Oxygenation of (20 and 95%) acetic acid containing 0. 5 m NaAc was shown to produce anomalous iron dissolution during cathodic polarization of the iron electrode. Different mechanisms for the anomalous iron dissolution were discussed, and it was concluded that the process is chemical in nature. It was suggested that the chemical dissolution is caused by reaction of the iron surface with one of the oxygen reaction intermediates.
