A phenomenon of current oscillators was characterized crosswise active-passive potential region during the electrodissolution of copper electrode in trifluoroacetic acid (TFA). The current density-potential curves show two transition points. A potential region of current oscillations was found as a part of limiting current region. The Cu vertical bar TFA electrochemical oscillator was found to displaying rich dynamical response on varying the temperature and the applied potential. The Cu vertical bar TFA system display current oscillation behaviour from the mono-periodic to the mixed-mode (relaxation type). Changes of the electrode surface structure and morphology were investigated by X-ray diffraction spectroscopy, atomic forced microscopy and optical microscopy.
