Abstract

The electrical double layer at ionic liquid (IL)-Au(111) interfaces is composed of alternating ion layers. Interfacial layering is markedly weaker when small amounts of LiCl are dissolved in the IL for all potential between -2.0 V and +2.0 V (vs. Pt). This means that models developed for pure IL electrical double layers may not be valid when solutes are present.
