Debye–Falkenhagen effect

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The increase in the conductivity of an electrolyte solution when the applied voltage has a very high frequency is known as Debye–Falkenhagen effect.[1] Impedance measurements on water-p-dioxane and the methanol-toluene systems have confirmed Falkenhagen's predictions made in 1929.[2]
