A procedure for the calculation of the characteristics of the inner part of the electrical double layer has been elaborated on the basis of the capacity data obtained in the conditions of specific adsorption of ions, accompanied by an increase of the inner layer dimensions. The formulae derived have been verified by studying the specific adsorption of tetraalkylammonium cations from aliphatic alcohols.
