Ultrafine powder samples of Cu, Fe, Ni, Mo and W were examined voltammetrically in aqueous suspensions with hanging mercury drop electrode. According to chemical interaction of the metallic powder particles with the dispersing medium the voltammetric curves either consist of a set of individual current peaks given by particulate reduction of surface oxides on impingements of particles from their suspension upon the electrode, or correspond to electroactivity of dissolved products of chemical reaction between particles and the medium.
