    • Abstract


      Increase in frequency is found to lower the depressing effect of the adsorption films of surface active substances on the dropping mercury electrode capacity. This fact appears to be of great interest from the point of view of elucidating the factors controlling the condenser current. Increase in frequency decreases the desorption peaks which points at the existence of some slow processes controlling the passage of electric charges during the sorption and desorption cycles.
