Abstract

Abstract The equilibrium electrical properties of the metal—electrolyte interface are investigated. It is shown that the capacity vs potential qualitative behaviour can be explained if bilayer gap relaxation is taken into account. The charge-induced electron “plate” displacement is calculated variationally within the density functional formalism. The bilayer critical peculiarities (catastrophe “flags”) are predicted and the possibility of their manifestation in different types of contact is discussed.
