Direct Current Conductometry of Track Membranes

  • V. V. Berezkin

The electrical conductivity measured for a KCl solution in pores of poly(ethylene terephthalate) track membranes has been studied as depending on electrolyte concentration and pore diameter with the use of a direct-current source. The difference between the experimentally determined conductivity and the standard value has been shown to decrease with increasing electrolyte concentration and pore diameter. At the same time, its value is significantly lower than that determined by impedance spectroscopy. This result is related to a decrease in the contribution of a gel layer formed on the pore surface upon coming into the contact with the electrolyte to the electrical resistance of a membrane.
