The problem of the adsorption behaviour of succinic acid has been studied from different points of view. The mobility of adsorbed species, the potential dependence of the adsorption and the effect of different ions and organic species on the adsorption were investigated in M HClO4 supporting electrolyte using platinized platinum electrode. It has been stated that succinic acid does not chemisorb under the experimental conditions studied, and it may be considered as a typical representative of organic compounds which behave like anions with respect to the adsorption properties. An attempt was made to explain the unexpected potential dependence of the adsorption of these species.
