In many respects the treatment of the electrical double layer (cf., e.g. Davies and Rideal 1961, Mohilner 1966) formed between two immiscible solutions of electrolytes is similar to that of metal/electrolyte or semiconductor/electrolyte interface. An interface, which is a site of a potential difference, must exhibit some type of a potential gradient across itself. The electrolyte side of a metal/electrolyte interface is described as being a site of a diffuse double layer — a region with an excess of charge, balancing the charge on the elctrode. On such a model the theory of Gouy (1910) and Chapman (1913) can be applied giving information on a capacitance of the double layer. Based on this theory, the first treatment of ITIES was presented by Verwey and Niessen (1939).
