half-wave potential

The potential of a polarographic or voltammetric indicator electrode at the point, on the rising part of a polarographic or voltammetric wave, where the difference between the total current and the residual current is equal to one-half of the limiting current. The quarter-wave potential, the three-quarter-wave potential, etc., may be similarly defined.
