Abstract:

It has been suggested that certain types of adsorption-sensitive mechanical behavior may be understood, in a general way, by considering the type, concentration, mobility and adsorption-induced redistribution of the charge carriers in the solid. Some recent experimental observations on the embrittlement of AgCl, and Rebinder effects adsorption-induced reductions in microhardness in ionic crystals are described and discussed in terms of this hypothesis.
