Cation Migration in Electrode Glasses

A modified moving boundary method for the investigation of cation migration within solids has been developed and applied to lithium-containing pH-electrode glasses [1,2]. Concentration profiles of the boundary between different ions drifting in the field are measured by subsequently ion-sputtering the membrane surface using a method described by Bach [3–7].

From aqueous acid solutions are transferred protons and no hydronium ions. H+ mobilities are smaller than those of Li+ ions by more than 103, thus generating distinct layers of migrating ions. Corresponding activation energies are not very different.

Simultaneous transfer of ions (H+, D+, Li+, Na+) across the interface depends on ionic radii and activities in the anodic solution. Particularly important is the pH-dependent dissociation of surface ≡ESiOH groups governing the Li+ + H+ transfer. The results support the dissociation mechanism of pH-glass electrode response proposed earlier [8].
