Abstract : The fluorescence detected surface EXAFS of silver, underpotentially deposited from aqueous solutions of silver ion (Perchloric acid electrolyte) on Gold (111) electrodes was used to investigate the local structure of the adsorbate. Analysis of the data indicates that the silver atoms are bonded to three surface gold atoms at a distance of 2.75+05A and to an oxygen atom (from solvent or electrolyte) at a distance of 2.42+05A. These data suggest that the silver atoms sit at three-fold sited on the gold surface with water or perchlorate anion (from the electrolyte) bonded at a well defined distance.
