Hydrogen adsorption on ruthenium

The adsorption of hydrogen on a ruthenized platinum electrode has been studied. On the potentiodynamic curve two peaks are observed, corresponding to weakly and strongly bonded hydrogen. The adsorption of the two forms of hydrogen increases with increasing temperature. Hydrogen adsorption on ruthenium obeys the Frumkin isotherm for a uniformly heterogeneous surface. The differential heats of adsorption at constant volume have been calculated. The heat of adsorption decreases gradually from 10 kcal/mol (Θ=0.05) to 3.2 kcal/mol (Θ=0.7).

В работе пров одилось изучение адсорбции водорода на рутенированном платиновом злектроде. На φ, ϕ-кривой рутения наблюдаются два максимума, соответствующие слабо-и крепкосвязанному водороду. С увеличением температуры возрастает адсорбция обеих форм водорода. Теплота адсорбции водорода равномерно уменьшается от φО ккал/моль (θH=0,05) до 3,2 ккал/моль (θH=0,7).
