In the early 1900s, Several physical chemists, including Niels Bjerrum and William Sutherland, assumed that strong electrolytes are completely dissociated in solution. Based on this assumption, Milner calculated osmotic coefficients, a quantity related to the activity coefficient. Debye and Hückel developed a mathematical route to treat equilibrium properties of electrolytes. Introduction The Debye–Hückel theory is a theoretical explanation for departures from ideality in electrolytes solutions. 5
Ideal Solution: Measurement quantity are proportional to the concentration of the solute. Real Solution: Measurement quantity are proportional to the activation of the solute. Introduction A B C mole fraction Measurement quantity The Debye-Hückel limiting law enables to determine the activity coefficient of an ion in a dilute solution of known ionic strength. 6
The model of DH Theory principal assumption is that departure from ideality is due to electrostatic interactions between ions, mediated by Coulomb's law: It is also assumed that: The dissolved electrolyte is completely dissociated. Ions are spherical and are not polarized by the surrounding electric field. The solvent plays no role other than providing a medium of constant relative permittivity. There is no electrostriction. Central ion is surrounded by a spherically symmetric cloud of opposite ions. 7

Mathematical development The equation has the following general solution: D&H say that the total potential inside the sphere is B i is a constant that represents potential added by the ionic atmosphere and be caused non-ideal behavior. 11
Mathematical development The definition of the Gibbs free entropy is: paper Debye in 1924 reformulated his original paper with Hückel (1923), which dealt with osmotic coefficient. This equation (Debye-Hückel limiting law ) is one studies in modern physical chemistry textbooks. 12
Extended Debye-Hückel Equation The assumptions can be challenged: Complete dissociation: Ion association may take place, particularly with ions of higher charge. Weak electrolytes: A weak electrolyte is not fully dissociated. Ions are spherical and are not polarized: Many ions such as the nitrate ion NO 3- are manifestly not spherical and Polyatomic ions are also polarizable. Role of the solvent: The solvent is not a structureless medium. The water molecules in aqueous solution are both dipolar and polarizable. One such Extended Debye-Hückel Equation is: 13
