The use of Raman and infrared spectroscopy to obtain the vibrational spectra of molecules and ions adsorbed at the metal electrode-aqueous electrolyte interface are described. To obtain Raman spectra, we use surface polaritons and roughness to enhanced spectral intensities. In the infrared, we use Fourier transform and modulated reflection-absorption techniques. Raman results for fatty acids, chloride, and thiocyanate on silver electrodes are presented, together with a combined Raman and infrared study of cyanide adsorbed on silver. Author
