Abstract:

In spite of the fact that N-methylformamide NMF has attracted considerable attention as a solvent for electrolyte solutions because of its unusually high dielectric constant, very few studies of its interfacial properties have been made. It is apparent from these and related studies that Cs is specifically adsorbed on mercury from solutions in NMF and other amide solvents. The purpose of the present work was to determine the potential range over which cation adsorption is significant, and to re-examine the question of dielectric saturation in the diffuse layer in this highly structured solvent.
