A Theoretical Model for the Charging Dynamics of Associating Ionic Liquids
Association between cations and anions plays an important role in the interfacial structure of room-temperature ionic liquids (ILs) and their electrochemical performance. Whereas great efforts have
1D Mathematical Modelling of Non-Stationary Ion Transfer in the Diffusion Layer Adjacent to an Ion-Exchange Membrane in Galvanostatic Mode
A new boundary condition is proposed, which sets a total current density via an equation expressing the potential gradient as an explicit function of i, and for the first time, the distributions of concentrations, space charge density and current density along the distance to an ion-exchange membrane surface are computed as functions of time in galvanostatic mode.


Ionic screening and dissociation are crucial for understanding chemical self-propulsion in polar solvents.
It is found that association-dissociation reactions should have a strong influence on swimmers' behaviour, and therefore should be included in future modelling, and the effect of the Debye screening length itself is investigated, going beyond the infinitely-thin-screening-length approximation used by previous analytical theories.
Electrolysis of pure water in a thin layer cell
Diffuse-charge dynamics in electrochemical systems.
The response of a model microelectrochemical system to a time-dependent applied voltage is analyzed, including electrochemistry, colloidal science, and microfluidics, including surface conduction, multicomponent electrolytes, and Faradaic processes.

A comprehensive survey on experimental techniques, results and theoretical interpretations concerning the self-dissociation and protonic charge transport in water and ice is given. Recent
Transport-limited water splitting at ion-selective interfaces during concentration polarization.
We present an analytical model of salt- and water-ion transport across an ion-selective interface based on an assumption of local equilibrium of the water-dissociation reaction. The model yields
Smoluchowski's method of evaluating the fundamental f requency factor for the rate of a reaction like the coagulation of colloid suspension by employing a purely diffusional treatment is extended to
Poisson–Nernst–Planck model of multiple ion transport across an ion-selective membrane under conditions close to chlor-alkali electrolysis
The assumption of electrochemical equilibrium at membrane–electrolyte interfaces is frequently accepted in a mathematical simulation of multiple ion transport (MIT) across a single-layer
Decoupling of the nernst-planck and poisson equations. Application to a membrane system at overlimiting currents.
A general method for resolving ordinary and singularly perturbed problems with one-dimensional stationary Nernst-Planck and Poisson equations describing ion electrodiffusion in multicomponent solution/electrode or ion-conductive membrane systems is developed.
