Abstract:

Infrared spectroscopy, and in particular the method of subtractively normalized interfacial Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy SNIFTIRS, has been used extensively to examine interactions of species at the electrode electrolyte interface. In most experiments to date, interactions at solid electrodes have been studied. A method to probe interactions at the mercury solution has been developed and is presented in this presentation. The potential dependent frequency shifts of species absorbed at mercury electrodes are compared with shifts observed for similar species adsorbed on d-band metals. Keywords Electrochemistry Isoquinoline.
