Abstract

The study of the structure of the electrode/electrolyte (or more generally the solid/electrolyte) interface1,2 represents a problem of both fundamental and practical importance in electrochemistry and many other interfacial disciplines since its properties greatly affect (and often control) reactivity. Its importance relates to a broad range of problems including corrosion, catalysis, fuel cells, the potential and ionic gradients at charged interfaces including colloids and biological membranes, and many others. This problem has, until recently, proved very elusive to experimental study due to the difficulty of applying structure-sensitive techniques to the study of surfaces in contact with a condensed phase. Thus, most of our knowledge of the structure of the electrode/solution interface is based on indirect evidence which relies primarily on theoretical models to explain thermodynamic, spectroscopic, and kinetic data.
