Interfacial Effects in Mass Transport in Ionic Solids

Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 97)


In any study of mass transport, processes occurring at interfaces play a role. This is true both for diffusion experiments and for measurements of the ionic conductivity. If the aim of such a measurement is the determination of a bulk property, it is always necessary to give attention to a possible interference caused by processes occurring at the surface, at electrodes, if present, or at grain boundaries if a ceramic sample is used. Also when mass-transport processes are utilized in a practical device, such as for instance a galvanic cell, interface properties must be taken into consideration during the design and fabrication of the device. The interfaces that play an important role are:
  1. a)

    Grain boundaries in ceramics,

  2. b)

    Free surfaces in dense or porous samples,

  3. c)

    Interfaces between components of heterogeneous samples,

  4. d)

    Electrodes on solid ionic conductors.
