Poisson-Boltzman equation

Charge near electrode depends

upon potential and is integrated

over distance from surface - affects

the effective surface potential

Dielectric constant of solution

initial surface potential is small:

Potential decays from the surface potential exponentially with distance

Then:

General Solution of:

Because Y goes to zero as x goes to infinity

B must be zero

Because Y goes to Y0 as x goes to zero (e0 =1)

A must be Y0

In the event we can not use a series approximation to solve the

Poisson-Boltzman equation we get the following:

Example Problem

A 10 mV perturbation is applied to an electrode surface bathed in

0.01 M NaCl. What potential does the outer edge of a Ru(bpy)33+

molecule feel?

Debye length, x?

Units are 1/cm

Since the potential applied (10 mV) is less than 50 can use

the simplified equation.

The potential the Ru(bpy)33+ compound experiences

is less than the 10 mV applied.

This will affect the rate of the electron transfer event

from the electrode to the molecule.

Surface Charge Density

The surface charge distance is the integration over all the charge

lined up at the surface of the electrode

The full solution to this equation is:

For large applied potentials and/or for large salt concentrations

1. ions become compressed near the electrode surface to

create a “Helmholtz” layer.

2. Need to consider the diffuse layer as beginning at the

Introducing the Zeta Potential

along this charged surface.

Some of the charge will be carried

away with the flowing solution.

The zeta potential is dependent upon how the electrolyte

Movement of a charged ion in an electric field

Electrophoretic mobility

The force from friction is equal to the electric driving force

The frictional drag comes

ion’s atmosphere is moving

in the opposite direction, dragging

solvent with it, the drag is related to the ion atmosphere

Drag Force

Electric Force

Direction of Movement

Ion accelerates in electric field until the electric force

is equal and opposite to the drag force = terminal velocity

At terminal velocity

The mobility is the velocity normalized for the electric field:

Sir George Gabriel

Stokes 1819-1903

Stokes-Einstein

equation

r = hydrodynamic

(Stokes Law)

Typical values of the electrophoretic mobility are

small ions 5x10-8 m2V-1s-1

proteins 0.1-1x10-8 m2V-1s-1

Reiger p. 97

When particles are smaller than the Debye length you get

The following limit:

Remember: velocity is mobility x electric field

Compare the two equations for electrophoretic mobility

Where f is a shape term which is 2/3 for spherical

Solution Resistance Depends upon

Resistivity of soln.

Resistance also depends upon the shape

Of an electrode

Scan rate 1000 V/s at two different size electrodes for

Thioglycole at Hg electrode

Conductivity is the inverse of Resistance

Resistivity and conductivity both depend upon

Concentration. To get rid of conc. Term divide

A plot of the molar conductivity vs Concentration has a slope

Related to the measurement device, and an intercept related to

The molar conductivity at infinite dilution

This standard molar conductivity depends upon the solution

Compute the resistance of a disk electrode

Of 0.2 cm radius in a 0.1 M CaCl2 solution

Remember – we were trying to get to mobility

From a conductance measurement!!!!

Also remember that mobility and diffusion coefficients are

related

Fe(CN)63- diffusion coefficient is 9.92x10-10 m2/s

Fe(CN)64- diffusion coefficient is 7.34x10-10 m2/s

The more highly charged ion has more solution solutes around

It which slows it down.

How does this effect the rate of electron transfer?

Work of bringing ions together

The larger kappa the smaller the activation energy, the closer

Ions can approach each other without work

When one ion is very large with respect to other (like an electrode)

Then the work term can be simplified to:
