Abstract : The energies that are necessary to remove oxygen from the crystals that are on the surface of charged nickel oxide electrodes were calculated from the rates of evolution of oxygen from their surfaces into a vacuum. These energies increase in steps of about three kilo calories; this rate of increase is nearly the same as Bradshaw and Shuttleworth (Phys. Rev. v94 p753 1954) found for the physisorption of inert gases on the surface of various crystals. The energies of attachment of the oxygen to the nickel oxide crystals were used to calculate the half lives of the oxides on the surface of the charged nickel oxide electrodes. (Author)
