Abstract

ELECTRICAL measurement of the impedance of electrode–solution interfaces involves experimental determination of the impedance of the whole electrochemical cell and correction for the ohmic drop across the internal cell-resistance that is in series with the interface under study. This ohmic drop is not negligible in investigations of redox processes (alternating current polarography1) or of adsorption–desorption reactions (tensammetry1).
