Abstract

The current ongoing scientific debate deals with accumulation of hydronium ions (H3O+) on water surface. Elevated interfacial concentration measured by using Raman spectroscopy. A strong surface affinity of H3O+ indicated by Raman spectroscopy under similar conditions. Ion adsorption phenomena, H3O+ formation and its structural activity emphasized in our study. Asymmetric water ion adsorption clearly observed in our research.
