Introduction and Definitions

  • Stuart I. Smedley


Although the phenomenon of ionic conductance in simple liquids has been well characterised, the interpretation of the phenomenon is not well advanced. This is principally the result of our minimal knowledge of the molecular dynamics of ions in liquids. However, during the past 10 to 15 years, the results from relaxation spectroscopy and computer simulation of liquid particle dynamics have provided a new insight into the factors determining the mechanism of ionic transport. These factors are discussed in the chapters that follow.
