In this presentation, the change in both the double layer and faradaic capacitance with increasing film thickness of anodically prepared deposits will be discussed. With increasing film thickness the gravimetric double layer capacitance increases; however, this is significantly offset by a degradation in material activity, leading to an overall decay in material capacitance. The proposed structural and morphological reasons for these changes will be discussed.
