Transport Two Tricks to Minimize Liquid Junction Potentials Potentials • Use a salt bridge with ions of matched mobility. E.g.: Equal mobility for an anion and cation of the same charge). Why? Why? • Use a salt bridge with a high salt concentration. Why? Another Pitfall that Prevents Linear Calibration Curves Calibration E right = E 0 Ag + , Ag 2.303RT 1 log F a Ag + • Theory clearly shows that there is a linear relationship between E and the logarithm of the activity, not the logarithm of concentration. activity, • E will only depend linearly on the logarithm of the concentration if… concentration (1) … (2) … The Liquid Junction Potential The Common Salt Bridges: KCl (3 M) LiOAc (1 M) Morf, W.
