Theoretical estimation of the activation energy of electrochemical reactions is of critical importance but remains challenging. In this work, we address the usage of an implicit solvation model for describing hydrogen evolution reaction steps on Pt(111) and Pt(110), and compare with the 'extrapolation' approach and co-workers as well as single-crystal measurements. We find that both methods yield qualitatively similar results, which are in fair agreement with the experimental data. Care shoulddoi:10.26434/chemrxiv.7208531.v1 fatcat:s7cceoh3rnabjo6rifkw6vggke
