Abstract : The application of x-ray diffraction methods to electrochemical studies is demonstrated by examination of the surfaces of polycrystalline solids by reflection diffractometry, operation of a cell designed for simultaneous x-ray and electrochemical studies, and the Berg-Barrett topographic technique. Silver anodes are used for illustrating the kind of information readily obtained by these methods: identity of crystalline reaction products associated with electrochemical phenomena, physical characterization of reaction mechanisms involving multiphasic coatings, distinction between large grains and preferred orientation, and estimations of coating thickness and crystal size.
