    Abstract: Parchment-supported silver sulfite membrane has been prepared by the interaction method. The membrane potential across the membrane in contact with different 1:1 electrolytes has been measured. The experimentally measured membrane potential values were used to evaluate the thermodynamically effective fixed charge density of the membrane-electrolyte... Show More
