Abstract

Electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM) technique provides a direct assessment to the behavior of electroadsorbed ions and solvent molecules confined in micropores of activated carbon electrodes in contact with practically important aprotic electrolyte solutions. The estimated value of the solvation number equal to 3 is evident for a partial desolvation of Li + cations when adsorbed in carbon micropores.
