Ionic Size Effect on the Double Layer Properties: A Modified Poisson-Boltzmann Theory

On the basis of a simple modified Poisson-Boltzmann (SMPB) theory, taking into account the finite ionic size, the analytic expression for the effect of ionic size on the diffuse layer potential drop

Steric effects in the dynamics of electrolytes at large applied voltages. I. Double-layer charging.

This two-part series considers steric effects on diffuse charge dynamics (in the absence of electro-osmotic flow) and two simple models for the charging of a thin double layer, which must form a condensed layer of close-packed ions near the surface at high voltage.

Competitive adsorption and ordered packing of counterions near highly charged surfaces: From mean-field theory to Monte Carlo simulations.

This work provides a better understanding of competitive adsorption of counterions of multiple species to charged surfaces and calls for further studies on the ionic size effect with application to large-scale biomolecular modeling.

Osmotic pressure of charged colloidal suspensions: a unified approach to linearized Poisson-Boltzmann theory.

It is shown that whether or not linear theory predicts a phase separation depends crucially on the precise definition of the pressure, showing that depending on the choice, an artificial phase separation in systems as important as DNA in physiological salt solution may result.

Numerical methods for the Poisson-Fermi equation in electrolytes

Analytical Interfacial Layer Model for the Capacitance and Electrokinetics of Charged Aqueous Interfaces.

An analytical model is constructed to account for the influence of the subnanometer-wide interfacial layer on the differential capacitance and the electro-osmotic mobility of solid-electrolyte interfaces, showing that a finite-viscosity layer explains the experimental data better than the usual hydrodynamic slip boundary condition.

Poisson–Boltzmann for oppositely charged bodies: an explicit derivation

The interaction between two parallel charged plates in ionic solution is a general starting point for studying colloidal complexes. An intuitive expression of the pressure exerted on the plates is



Steric Effects in Electrolytes: A Modified Poisson-Boltzmann Equation

The adsorption of large ions from solution to a charged surface is investigated theoretically. A generalized Poisson-Boltzmann equation which takes into account the finite size of the ions is

A model for ionic solutions with an attractive short-range pair interaction between the ions is presented, and the counterion density is found to increase near the charged surface, as compared with the Poisson-Boltzmann theory, and to decrease at larger distances.

A modified Poisson-Boltzmann analysis of the solvent primitive model electrical double layer

A modified Poisson-Boltzmann theory is used to analyse the steric effects of the solvent in the electrical double layer by considering a mixture of charged and uncharged hard spheres moving in a

An extension of the Poisson–Boltzmann theory of the electric double layer is applied to a symmetric electrolyte between two charged planar surfaces. This analytic treatment includes the effects of
