Abstract:
The Hurwitz-Parsons method of analysis is employed utilizing a spreadsheet application on an IBM-AT. It is designed to calculate the extent of specific adsorption of an inorganic anion or neutral organic molecule at a solid electrode without knowledge of the point of zero charge. Up to eight bulk adsorbate concentrations represented by differential capacitance versus potential curves may be input. The curves can contain up to 100 points. Output is in units of moles/cm2 and is provided at 10 potentials for each bulk adsorbate concentration. A detailed overview and a formula list of the application are provided. A brief overview of the theories associated with the electrochemical double layer and a related literature review are included.
