Abstract: This paper describes in situ X-ray diffraction and cyclic voltammetric studies of silver electrode in alkaline solution (NaOH or KOH). The results have shown that the oxides are Ag_2O and AgO, other than AgOH and Ag_2O, at potential E=0.20, 0,42 V(SCE), respectively.

Key words: Silver electrode, Oxide, In situ X-ray diffraction
