In this chapter the experimental results on adsorption of halide ion on Pt(111) surface is described.

DFT calculation suggests a work function decrease due to chloride, bromide, and iodide adsorption, with a maximum decrease at θ = 0.25 ML. This counterintuitive result is explained by a combination of charge transfer and polarization effects [1, 2].
