Abstract : The influence of surface roughness of solid electrodes on electrochemical measurements is critically examined. A model and its mathematical consequences are presented which describe the effects in at least a semiquantitative way. The conclusion is drawn that the neglect of surface roughness has led to apparent misinterpretations in literature, and that great caution should be exercised in this respect. (Author)
