Abstract:Effect of the nature of cations of alkali metals on the EDL structure during adsorption of hydroxide ions at a gold electrode is considered. It is shown that the reason for such an effect can be the pulling of cations into the dense layer resulting from the formation of associates of cations and specifically adsorbed anions OH^–. Parameters that reflect this phenomenon are estimated quantitatively.
