Abstract: The theories and expressions of electrochemistry have usually been derived by assuming some simple electrode geometry ensuring homogeneous current distribution along the surface. This is often not the case for practical electrodes: surface roughness, porosity and non-uniform surface activity cause current density inhomogeneities which in turn make the overall electrochemical behaviour complicated. One possible way of taking geometrical irregularities into account is to model the surfaces by fractals, whose mos…
