We study the low-frequency polarization response of a surface-charged oblate spheroidal particle immersed in an electrolyte solution. Because the charged spheroid attracts counterions which form the electric double layer around the particle, using usual boundary conditions at the interface between the particle and electrolyte can be quite complicated and challenging. Hence, we generalize Fixman's boundary conditions, originally derived for spherical particles, to the case of the charged oblate…

The present analysis extends the conventional one-dimensional treatment on simple geometries to a two-dimensional space and shows that using an equivalent sphere to approximate a spheroid can lead to an appreciable deviation in the prediction of the Helmholtz free energy.
