The electrochemical behavior of methanesulfonic acid on platinum single crystal electrode surfaces is investigated by cyclic voltammetry and infrared spectroscopy measurements. The results are compared with those characteristic of perchloric and trifluoromethanesulfonic acids. The differences on the voltammetric profile are interpreted in terms of the effect of the anion on the structure of water. No adsorbed species are detected by infrared spectroscopy.
