Example text

Instead, we consider the molar conductivities of electrolytes and ions as defined above and where necessary indicate the electrolyte units to which the concentrations refer: for example, Λ(MgCl2) or Λ(ᎏ12ᎏMgCl2), λ(Ca2ϩ) or λ(ᎏ12ᎏCa2ϩ). We evidently have Λ(ᎏ12ᎏMgCl2) ϭ ᎏ12ᎏΛ(MgCl2). It is a typical feature of aqueous electrolyte solutions that one can, within wide limits, change the solute concentrations and hence the conductivities themselves. Pure water has a very low value of σ; it is about 5 µS/m at room temperature after careful purification of the water.

Circuits that in addition include at least one ionic conductor are called galvanic circuits. The technical realization of a galvanic circuit is also called a galvanic cell (or electrochemical cell or electrolysis cell). Galvanic circuits have a number of characteristic features not present in purely electronic circuits. It is one of the more important tasks of electrochemistry to consider these features. 19) (ZnCl2, aq denotes an aqueous solution of ZnCl2). Vertical lines in the scheme denote the areas of contact (interfaces) between two adjacent conductors.

Electric current freely flows from the former into the latter semiconductor, but an electric field “repelling” the free carriers from the junction arises when the attempt is made to pass current in the opposite direction: Holes are sent back into the p-phase, and electrons are sent back into the n-phase. As a result, the layers adjoining the interface are depleted of free charges, their conductivities drop drastically, and current flow ceases (“blocking” the interface). When the current is carried by different species in the two adjacent phases, the continuous flow of carriers is interrupted.
