Paper Abstract

The transfer of protons in contact-charging experiments is an example of an ion transfer mechanism and is suggested by the availability and mobility of the H+ ion. In contact charging experiments using metal beads and a resin containing an acidic additive, the author found that the metal beads develop a positive charge, and analysis of the bead surface with a proton-specific dye indicates an increased proton content. These results provide confirmation for proton transfer in contact charging as is often suggested.
