We propose a new electroanalytical method by which two unknown values among three electrochemical values, i.e. electrode area, diffusion coefficient, and concentration, can be simultaneously obtained by nonlinear regression analysis of a single chronoamperometric faradaic current curve at a microelectrode of disk shape. It is an analytical application of the semi-empirical equation presented by Shoup and Szabo for the chronoamperometric response at a disk electrode. To demonstrate the usefulness and accuracy of this new method, the chronoamperometric current at a platinum disk electrode of 50 mm radius in solutions of Ru(NH3)63+, ferrocene, Fe(CN)63-, and C60, were analyzed.
