SERS studies of electrode/electrolyte interfacial water part II - Librations of water correlated to hydrogen evolution reaction
- 化学化工－已发表论文 
Electrode/electrolyte interfacial water is one of the most interesting systems studied by surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) in the past two decades, and is briefly reviewed. It has been shown that the SERS characteristics of water are very different from those of other surface species. Strong libration bands and the abnormal enhancement of the bending mode of water on Cu and Ag electrodes have been observed in the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) potential region (< -1.0 V vs. SCE). The observations may be attributed to the special interfacial structure of water molecules, which is in favor of the deprotonation of water and mass transfer of the proton and the reaction product OH- from the surface to the bulk through the hydrogen bonding net during HER. A new enhancement mechanism for SERS involving charge transfer (CT) from metal to water is suggested by the correlation of HER current density and SERS band intensity. The generality of this CT enhancement is briefly discussed. (C) 1998 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
