Abstract: Peroxodisulfate reduction has been investigated on Pt(111) on a broad range of pH values as a way to test interfacial charge. The reaction always proceeds in a potential window that is almost pH independent, regardless of changes in the presence of adsorbed species. Comparison with other available information for these interphases allows to conclude that this reaction is very sensitive to the free charge on the metal, being inhibited when the latter is negative. This explains the complete current inhibition when the potential is lower than the potential of zero free charge. Most remarkably, the inhibition at high potentials can be related to the existence of a second potential of zero charge, above which the surface becomes again negatively charged. This conclusion agrees with classical results for polycrystalline platinum (which has been reexamined), results from laser induced T-jump experiments and recent theoretical models of the interphase. In this way, this reaction is postulated as a new probe to locate the values of the potential of zero free charge.
