Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to discuss the equilibrium data that can be obtained for the mercury-electrolyte and the solid-metal-electrolyte interfaces, together with their interpretation. Unfortunately, kinetic data cannot yet be obtained by electrochemical relaxation nor by spectroscopic methods for these systems. The thermodynamic data must, therefore, for the moment, stand alone. It is, however, sufficiently characteristic for us to be convinced that a satisfactory phenomenological explanation of the data is possible, which will incorporate the known basic properties of the species present at the interface. This model will be presented herein. A detailed molecular model is another matter and cannot be attempted without kinetic data.
