The interpretation of activation parameters for electrochemical reactions involving surface-attached or adsorbed reactants is considered and compared with the corresponding experimental quantities for solution-phase reactants. The relation between the experimental activation parameters and the theoretically relevant quantities describing the energetics of heterogeneous electron transfer is summarised; this relationship is shown to be especially straightforward for surface-attached reactants.
