Surface Processes

  • Digby D. Macdonald

Abstract

In the preceding four chapters only those processes for which the rates are partially or wholly controlled by diffusion in solution were considered. The electrode surface was regarded as a two-dimensional site for charge transfer and only in this respect was it considered to be involved in the reaction mechanisms. However, a large number of charge transfer reactions are known to exhibit no dependence of rate upon hydrodynamic phenomena, such as stirring. Consequently, diffusion in solutions plays little if any role in determining the kinetics of the overall reaction. These reactions are classified as “surface processes.”
