3BjerrumAsCharge of ions increases (zi): r* increases, probability of ion pair formation increases.Temperature increases, r* decreases, probability of IP formation decreases. Kinetic energy acts against attraction.Polarity of solvent increases (er), attraction decreases, probability of IP formation decreases
4Very difficult to bring the opposite ions so close! Electrostatic potential energy for inter- action between two univalent ions:Substitute r = r*For univalent electrolyte in water at 25oC, IP formation is negligibler* is only nm.Very difficult to bring the opposite ions so close!
18measurement of transport numbers by Hittorf method The method of Hittorf is based on concentration changes in the anodic region and cathodic region in an electrolytic cell, caused by the passage of current through the electrolyte.
20A solution of LiCl was electrolyzed in a Hittorf cell A solution of LiCl was electrolyzed in a Hittorf cell. After a current of 0.79 A had been passed for 2 h, the mass of LiCl in the anode compartment has decreased by g.Calculate the transport numbers of Li+ and Cl-.If Lo(LiCl) is 115 W-1cm2mol-1, what are the molar ionic conductivities and the ionic mobilities?
212) The moving-boundary method MA, MA’ have an ion in common. The boundary, rather difference in color, refractivity, etc. is sharp.In the steady state, the two ions move with the same velocity.
22When Q coulomb passes, the boundary moves x, the cross-sectional area of the tube is A: No. of mole of H+ that passed from AA’ to BB’n=c.V=c+.A.xCharge carried by these moles:Q+=z+ F n+=z+ F c+ A x
23Sample:When A = 1.05×10-5 m2, c(HCl) = 10.0 mol m-3, I = 0.01 A for 200 s, x was measured to be 0.17 m. Calculate t (H+).Solution:t+ = 0.17 m× 1.05 × 10-5 m2 × 10.0 mol m-3 ×1× C mol-1 / 0.01 A × 200 S= 0.82
24Independent migration Kohlrausch’s Law ofIndependent migrationValid only at infinite dilution!
27Grotthuss MechanismExplains the high conductivity of H+ and OH- in water
28Ion Solvation Size But larger size means slower motion, the conductivity should drop?!!!!Smaller size,larger interaction with water molecule,hydrate shell larger on Li+,moving species larger,Lower conductivity
