Abstract:  The electrochemical oscillations of the system Hg|HSO4-|BrO3-  which arise at a dropping mercury electrode in the solution of H2SO4 in the presence of sodium bromate in the interval of potentials ⟨+0.06 V, +0.02 V⟩  referred to the potential of the electrode Hg2SO4 (c = 2 mol dm-3)|Hg are described in this paper. The nonlinear increase in anodic current and linear increase in surface tension of the dropping mercury electrode periodically vary with time in the course of a few hours. A probable mechanism giving rise to electrochemical oscillations which have not been described yet is discussed. The basis of this mechanism is simulta­neous electroreduction of bromates and electrooxidation of mercury bringing about the formation of surface film.
