The chronoamperometric response at a microdisk is used for the direct determination of the diffusion coefficient of an electroactive species. The method does not require knowledge of the bulk concentration and the number of electrons participating in the electrode reaction, and requires only a value for the disk radius. Subsequent determination of the number of electrons (n) for an electrode reaction or the concentration of electroactive species is also possible. This approach is demonstrated with the evaluation of the diffusion coefficient of Fe(CN)6(4-) in KCl and that of borohydride ion in NaOH. In both cases, the values of n found remained constant over a wide time range and correspond to those expected for these processes.
