The adsorption of p-nitrophenol was studied by tracer and electrochemical methods. It was found that there is no unambiguous relation between the extent of the adsorption and the rate of the hydrogenation reaction. At potentials more positive than 1200-1300 mV an increase in the adsorption may be observed. The amount adsorbed corresponds to several monolayers. The adsorbed species are bonded strongly to the surface. From these statements it was concluded that the phenomena observed above 1300 mV cannot be attributed to simple adsorption.
