The Continuum Theory

  • John O’M. Bockris

Abstract

In the early versions of the continuum theoretical treatment of the rate of a redox process in solution and at electrodes,1,3–9 there were qualitative introductory remarks about quantum mechanical principles. In particular, the Franck-Condon principle relating to the separation of the electron and solvent components of the Hamiltonian for the electron-solvent system was usually mentioned. However, in the simple pre-1965 formulations, no actual quantum mechanical calculations, nor even formulations of the Hamiltonians, were attempted. In particular, in the sophisticated paper of Marcus2 of 1965, the actual considerations are mainly in terms of statistical mechanics and electrostatics.
