Interdiffusion in ionic compounds

By Irina V. Belova and Graeme E. Murch


In this chapter, we review the Nernst-Planck equation describing the cation interdiffusion coefficient, the two tracer cation diffusion coefficients and the thermodynamic factor in ionic compounds and how it is related to the analogous Darken-Manning relationship in binary alloy systems. We make use of the Onsager flux equations of non-equilibrium thermodynamics to rigorously address the problem. The recently found correction factor to the Nernst-Planck equation is analyzed visually by means of computer simulation
