Thermoelectricity in Cnfined Liquid Electrolytes

  title={Thermoelectricity in Cnfined Liquid Electrolytes},
  author={Mathias Dietzel and Steffen Hardt},
The electric field in an extended phase of a liquid electrolyte exposed to a temperature gradient is attributed to different thermophoretic mobilities of the ion species. As shown herein, such Soret-type ion thermodiffusion is not required to induce thermoelectricity even in the simplest electrolyte if it is confined between charged walls. The space charge… CONTINUE READING
