Electrical Aspects of Liquid/Vapor, Liquid/Liquid, and Liquid/Metal Interfaces

  • B. E. Conway
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 193)


Manifestation of electrical behavior of interfaces depends in important ways on the type of liquid. Three principal types can be distinguished:
  1. a)

    metallic liquids, e. g., Hg, its amalgams, Ga;

  2. b)

    dipolar liquids, including H-bonded fluids; and

  3. c)

    non-polar liquids of spherical atoms or molecules, e.g., Ar, Ne, Ch4, etc.
