Abstract : The electrosorption valency for the adsorption of parabonic acid has been determined on single crystal gold electrodes and mercury near the point of zero charge. A new technique to perform the measurement using cyclic voltammetry is described. The electrosorption valency was found to be a linear function both of the potential of zero charge and of the work function of the metal. (AN)
