– We present a theory which accounts for the increase in interfacial tension of water due to the presence of 1:1 electrolyte. The agreement between the theory and experiment is excellent, extending all the way to relatively high salt concentrations of 1 M. For low concentrations of electrolyte the theory reduces to the Onsager-Samaras limiting law. Contrary(More)
A theory of a confined two-dimensional electrolyte is presented. The positive and negative ions, interacting by a 1/r potential, are constrained to move on an interface separating two solvents with dielectric constants epsilon(1) and epsilon(2). It is shown that the Debye-Hückel type of theory predicts that this two-dimensional Coulomb fluid should undergo(More)
