Abstract

Rub-a-dub-dub: The hypothesis of contact electrification through the transfer of cryptoelectrons was tested by scrutinizing the evidence for the reduction of Pd2+ and Cu2+ by static charges on rubbed Teflon. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy studies indicated that neither of these ions is reduced (see picture; black: Pd2+ adsorbed, red: Pd 0 adsorbed and then reduced by formadehyde, green: mixture of Pd 2+ and Pd0 arising from partial reduction after 2 h under the XPS probe) by the static charge. The presented alternative interpretation challenges the role of cryptoelectrons.
