Abstract

The paper presents the experimental dependence of the conductivity of bimolecular membranes on pH in the presence of a number of individual substances (fat soluble acids or bases) and two-fold combinations of these substances. It is shown that the conductivity of the membrane in the presence of a mixture of substances is not equal to the simple sum of the conductivities of the membrane with each of the substances separately. An attempt is made to explain the theoretically obtained results on the basis of the carrier model. The main experimental result-considerable intensification of the effect of the substances on joint action on the membranes-is satisfactorily explained by means of this model.
