The electrochemical behaviour of nitrite ions in acetonitrile medium has been investigated at platinum electrodes. The nitrite ion undergoes three consecutive oxidation steps with the formation of NO and , of and of respectively.
A fourth anodic wave, due to the oxidation of ions, is also observed but it has been established that is formed by hydrolysis of as a consequence of the presence of water, at trace level in acetonitrile solvent.
