Abstract:Like uracil, uridine forms a condensed monolayer at the mercury électrode. It is shown that the kinetics of condensation are controlled by a nucleation and growth mechanism. At sufficiently high supersaturation, the charge transients are analyzed according to the Avrami équations and the Classical Nucleation Theory. The parameters involved, such as the supersaturation and the line tension, are compared for the two surfactants.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
