Simultaneous oscillations of electrode potential, surface mass and specific surface energy have been detected in the course of galvanostatic oxidation of formic acid on platinum by using a Koesters laser interferometer combined with an electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance. Changes of surface energy data measured with the electrochemical Koesters laser interferometer and with the electrochemical bending beam technique are shown to be equivalent. Problems related to the interpretation of the measured data are discussed.
