Abstract

Ehrensvärd and Sillén1 have recently considered the interfacial potential difference between two immiscible or slightly miscible liquid phases containing electrolytes ; they conclude that the E.M.F.'s across cells of the type are not derived from true partition equilibria of the electrolyte between the aqueous phases and the adjoining regions of the oil phase, but from an "ion adsorption equilibrium between the aqueous phases and the interfacial layer".
