Abstract

An electrolyte local composition model is developed for excess Gibbs energy, which is assumed to be the sum of two contributions, one resulting from long range electrostatic forces between ions and the other from short range forces between all the species. The validity of the model is demonstrated for systems emcompassing the entire range from molecular liquid to fused salt.
