A gallium film electrode (prepared ‘in situ’) yielded reliable and reproducible polarisation data, indicating its potentialities in kinetic studies. The cyclic voltammogram indicates the appearance of anodic peak during the cathodic sweep and has been noted in this work. The potential regime over which the anodic peak currents appeared, the effect of alkali concentration sweep rate and the reversal of voltage excursion at different potential regimes on the anodic peak current have been investigated. The resultant experimental observations indicate the formation of a lower valent intermediate to be responsible for yielding this anodic peak current
