Abstract:

Electrochemistry dealing with interfaces between two immiscible and ionically conductive solutions ITIES has been documented in literature already a hundred years ago. The thermodynamically grounded interest in electrified interfaces is now just over a century old and it closely follows establishment of physical chemistry as an individual scientific discipline. Its first specialized journal, the Zeitschrift fur physikalische Chemie, founded in 1887 by Wilhelm Ostwald, was in its early years devoted mainly to electrochemical research. There, in 1988 the derivation of the Nernst equation appears 1, which can be applied not only to metalsolution interfaces, but to the liquid liquid interfaces as well. Systematic study of charge transport across immiscible interfaces and its implications to electrochemistry and electroanalysis as a separate discipline is relatively young. Its beginning could be placed approximately to middle 1970s.
