The mechanism of an straightforward act is certainly essentially the most primary difficulties of chemical and, specifically, electro chemical kinetics. even if this challenge has interested scientists for relatively decades, it was once merely within the past due fifties and early sixties that it all started to be actively investigated for cost move reactions. as a result of the advance of recent tools within the research of this challenge, major developments have been made in theoretical in addition to experimental reports. those investigations confirmed that the actual mechanism of cost move in all techniques together with heterogeneous electrochemical and homogeneous chemical and bio chemical procedures is largely an analogous. accordingly, the consequences ob tained within the box of electrochemical kinetics are appropriate to the knowledge of homogeneous chemical reactions to boot. This e-book endeavors to summarize the result of investigations conducted over the last twenty years. it truly is in line with the author's monograph "Electrode Reactions: The Mechanism of an basic Act" (Nauka, 1979). in comparison to the 1st model, the e-book has been significantly revised and enlarged not just to incorporate a wide physique of knowledge released among 1978 and 1982, but additionally to research intimately the hyperlinks among electrochemical and homogeneous, specifically enzymatic, kinetics. for that reason, a brand new bankruptcy has been extra to the booklet. The swap within the name displays the truth that the fabric inside the e-book isn't really limited to an research of in basic terms electrochemical problems.

On the other hand, in the bulk of a conducting solution of an electrolyte, the potential difference does not appear and the difference in chemical potentials of electrons is balanced by the different Galvani potential drops at the metal-solution interfaces. e. the electrochemical potential of an electron in a metal relative to its magnitude in the solution (the work function for a metal-solution interface), turns out to be the same. Thus, for two different metals at the same electrode potential, the energy level of an electron relative to its energy level in solution is the same.
E. the low concentration of electrons at the excited levels, which sharply decreases the probability of their participation in a transition. At a sufficiently large distance from the Fermi level (liE » RT), the occupancy of the electronic levels decreases exponentially. The probability of a transition from an excited level is proportional to the product of the probability that an electron occupies this level (this probability is given by exp(-lIE/RT)) and the probabilityfof this transition (which is determined ~y the activation energy E II and is proportional to exp(-E "/R¥)).
In order to illustrate the ideas that form the basis of this discussion, we shall consider the specific example of the cathodic evolution of hydrogen. The current density for the discharge reaction of a proton donor HB is given by i = ~ kT h e (l - 6) aHBa 7 exp [ - RT (1. 40) Here and in the following, e is the charge of an electron, k and h are Boltzmann's constant and Planck's constant respectively, ~ is the transmission coefficient, a - the activity, y - the activity coefficient, G - the Gibbs free energy, and G - the Gibbs electrochemical free energy.
