Charge Transfer Resistance (RCT)

What Does Charge Transfer Resistance (RCT) Mean?

Charge transfer resistance is a measure of the difficulty encountered when an electron is shifted from one atom or compound to another atom or compound. It is very similar to other forms of electrical resistance.

Charge transfer resistance is a measurement relevant to corrosion electrochemistry and electrochemical reactions.


Corrosionpedia Explains Charge Transfer Resistance (RCT)

Charge transfer resistance is measured in Ohms. The greater the Ohm measurement of the charge transfer resistance, the greater the energy that is lost during the charge transfer. An example of a charge transfer resistance is the resistance that is faced when an electron moves out of a molecule in an electrolytic solution and onto a molecule in an anode.
