A framework for analyzing interfacial charge transfer rate constants at semiconductor/liquid interfaces is presented. A theoretical approach and preliminary experimental evidence to support this theory is given. This approach readily predicts the steady state flux at a solid/liquid contact when the concentrations of electrons at the surface, ns, and that of acceptors in the solution is taken into account.
