Abstract

Workman-Reynolds freezing potentials have been measured across the interface between ice and dilute NaCl solutions as a function of ice growth rate for three salt concentrations. Growth rates of up to 40 μ·s -1 are used, and it is found that the measured voltage peaks at rates of ∼25 μ·s-1. Our initial results indicate that the freezing potential can be used as a probe into various aspects of the DC electrical resistance of ice as a function of variables such as salt concentration. © 2010 American Chemical Society.
