Unstable nonequillibrium Ag nanophase (clusters and nanometre size particles) generated on nonmetallic supports (glassy carbon and conducting SnO2 films) by Ag+ cathodic reduction at high overpotentials and low Ag+ concentrations transforms spontaneously into globular or planar nanostructures. The nanostructures differ from the equilibrium Ag phase in binding energy of core electrons and provide generation of oscillations in electrochemical reactions. © 1995 Elsevier Science B.V.
