I'm reading about electrodeposition of conductive polymers in a chemistry textbook, and the author mentions 'trace-crossing' in the 'potentiodynamic response'. From the context I can figure out that 'potentiodynamic response' means cyclic voltammogram. But what is the 'trace crossing'?

'Trace crossing' is in the literal sense, where 'trace' is another word for 'line'. 'Trace crossing' basically means that the line in the voltammogram crosses itself.

It would be great if you edited your answer to include a short explanation of when the voltammogram crosses itself and why it is important :) –  ManishEarth Jan 15 '13 at 17:42
