Abstract

The surface tension and surface potential of aqueous solutions of inorganic electrolytes are calculated. The new model includes image forces at liquid interfaces, ions of finite radii, the hydrophobic effect, and the Parsons-Zobel effect. For the first time, a good correlation between theory and experimental data both qualitatively and quantitatively is obtained for different inorganic salts over a wide range of concentrations.
