The impact of alkali metal cations on the OER activity.

Researches from Fysikum solved by careful experimentation and detailed theoretical analysis the old puzzle about the role of cations in OER, a problem that was studied for decades. Alkali metal cations dissociate at different rate and influence basicity of the solution differently. Our experimental data clearly show that any cations effect of different alkali metal in the same concentration on OER is negligible, so catalytic activity dominated by the electrolyte pH.
