Redox-mediated electrochemistry is an area of growing interest, particularly in the context of energy storage. The development of such systems requires knowledge of underlying reaction mechanisms, which bear similarities to the processes that underpin corrosion and semiconductor electrochemistry. Herein we discuss an example system, quinone-mediated zinc oxidation in an alkaline environment, using knowledge from the corrosion and semiconductor fields to understand the phenomenological aspects of the reaction.
