Whenever electrochemical reactants and products can exist in more than one isomeric form, the possibility exists of the electrochemical behavior being modified from the simple Butler-Volmer model. Free energy differences of the order of RT will frequently be involved, inhibiting resolution into distinct electrochemical events. In this article we address some consequences of the interactions of small interisomeric free energy differences with electron-transfer parameters, by analyzing the following schemes.
