Cyclic voltammetry take into account the mass transport of species and the kinetics at the electrode surface. Analytical solutions of these models are not well-known due to the complexity of the boundary conditions. In this study we present analytical relation between the concentration at the electrode surface and the current for quasi-reversible reaction.A new semi analytic description ofquasi-reversible cyclic voltammetry at a electrode is obtained, assuming equal diffusion coefficients. It provides rigorous and complete expression for the voltamettric current, in the form of the integral or the integral equation.This solution method can be extended to cases that are more general and may be useful for benchmarking purposes.
