Abstract:

A statistical mechanical model for adsorption is used to produce voltammograms with sharp spikes similar to those seen in recent studies of the underpotential deposition of metals onto single crystal electrodes. The voltammogram of the underpotential deposition of copper on the 111 surface of gold, which contains two spikes, can be reproduced by the model.
