Contact between a charged metal surface and an electrolyte implies a particular ion distribution near the charged surface, i.e. the electrical double layer. In this mini review, different mean-field models of relative (effective) permittivity are described within a simple lattice model, where the orientational ordering of water dipoles in the saturation regime is taken into account. The Langevin–Poisson–Boltzmann (LPB) model of spatial variation of the relative permittivity for point-like ions… Expand

Electric Double Layer and Orientational Ordering of Water Dipoles in Narrow Channels within a Modified Langevin Poisson-Boltzmann Model

Ionic screening of charged impurities in electrolytically gated graphene: A partially linearized Poisson-Boltzmann model.
It is found that, while the screened potential of a single charged impurity at large in-graphene distances exhibits a strong dependence on the ion concentration in the electrolyte and on the doping density in graphene, this dependence is largely suppressed in the autocovariance of the fluctuating potential.

Ion fluxes and electro-osmotic fluid flow in electrolytes around a metallic nanowire tip under large applied ac voltage.
The authors' analysis suggests that ac electro-osmotic flow causes an additional convective transport of metal complexes to the tip of the growing metal nanowires and thus affects the nanowire growth velocity. Expand

Treating the ion sizes as small parameters, an approximation of individual fluxes is derived from which one can further study the qualitative properties of ionic flows and extract concrete information directly related to biological measurements, which is closely related to selectivity phenomena of open ion channels with given protein structures.

Decrease of permittivity of an electrolyte solution near a charged surface due to saturation and excluded volume effects.
In this work a formula for the spatial dependence of the relative permittivity of an electrolyte near a highly charged surface is obtained in which the mutual influence of the water molecules is taken into account by means of the cavity field. Expand
Langevin Poisson-Boltzmann equation: point-like ions and water dipoles near a charged surface.
The mean-field Poisson-Boltzmann theory for point-like ions, describing an electrolyte solution in contact with a planar charged surface, is modified by including the orientational ordering of water, showing that the dielectric permittivity of an electrolytes close to a charged surface is decreased due to the increased orientational order of water dipoles.
